Long ago on a different forum, an oldtimer stated a possible reason Ford didn't use exhaust gaskets. Direct mating of the two surfaces, work as a heat sink, and helps dissipate heat away from the engine.

Arlie, I wouldn't be concerned with having slightly larger exhaust ports on the exhaust manifolds. Smaller would be a problem.
