would the reason some of the globes are extremely faint be that they might be the wrong wattage?
Yes, for example if the dash globes (bulbs) are 1.7W but are supposed to be 3.4W they'll be 1/2 the brightness -- but both look exactly the same

It doesn't need to be perfect, the A-series design is not fussy unlike some other manifolds.... just scrape clean. Can lightly sand if you want, but not necessary

The stock gasket type (composite) will hide lot of imperfection

One problem is you separate the exhaust manifold from the intake manifold. If you have done that, wait before tightening the manifold to manifold bolts. Bolt lightly to the engine (so that the flanges are lined up) before tightening them

Yes, I've had leaks before. Two different causes:

* If fuel is leaking around the top cover, it's just a packing (gasket) issue. Tightening the screws usually fixes it

* If fuel runs out near the pivot pin, or leaks near the packing with the engine block, the diaphragm that pumps the fuel has a small leak in it, letting fuel to the back side. Putting a new packing in just redirects the leak, now it's leaking into the engine oil pan ...

Which brass piece are you asking about?

Yes, they are alloy GM parts. Produced by PBR Australia. I heard they were fitted to some USA Camaros and the Pontiac GTO, not sure about that. Maybe the new USA Caprice as that is made down under
