Valve cover bolt placement?

Hey guys, in the middle of putting the beast back together after a head gasket job, and huduh! I forgot to document the bolt placement on the valve covers; some are regular bolts and some are extended for other things to attach to them, and I've no idea which should be where. Anybody got a bead on that? I couldn't find any images or diagrams on the net or in the service manual. It's a 1996 5.2l 4wd.

The studs are for the plug wire clips.
The fsm shows where they go, sort of.
I ditched them for stainless, and then t-handle bolts a while ago.

That'd be great, ilive. I'd really appreciate it. Are they the same valve covers?

Pretty sure there shouldn't be a difference. This is how mine are. The passenger side outside (facing fender) front to back goes stud,bolt,stud,bolt,stud. The passenger side inside (facing the throttle body) front to back goes stud, stud, bolt, stud, stud. The drivers side outside front to back goes bolt, stud, stud, bolt, stud. The drivers side inside front to back goes bolt, stud, bolt, stud, stud.
