Default valve cover bolts question (stems, locations, etc)

all,
the image below is of the valve cover bolts that came off my 95 gt. i assume they are the originals, but have no proof.
so, as you can see, they are a couple different lengths and some have stems for some reason.
my question is, do these go in certain spots, or can i just put them wherever i want. i cant think if what the bolts with the stems are for, so i want to be sure before i put things together
thanks in advance

The stims are for attaching a bundle or spark plug wires to the valve covers to keep them away from the headers. From the factory you car had a device that held 3 to 4 spark plug wires and that device slid over those stims. As for the different lengths .... good luck with that.

i took a look in the garage and found the clips. i didnt remember them being attached to the bolts. nice. only problem is i only could find 3 of the 4 small ones that go on the stems. i have all 4 of the big ones that dont go on the stems.
thanks again
