I prefer to drill and tap holes in the manifolds and use "carb sticks" to balance the carbs, but lacking those you can use drill bits to measure and compare the opening height of the slides. More information here:

You may be able to find a pair of later intake manifolds with cast bosses and threaded ports. I think they started in 1974.
