Your 3036 should have a 3/8-16 stud on the platform. No adapters should be needed for the head.
If your Manfrotto platform has a 1/4" stud then it *may* be reversible. If it is not then the ProSHop sells a 1/4" to 3/8" adapter for a few dollars. It is best to avoid the adapter so check for a reversing stud.
I would call or email the ProShop to verify the stock situation and how it is shipped.
Enjoy the Q20! It is a very fine ballhead indeed
