4.4l valve cover cap nut locations

this is really embarrassing, i forgot which ones go where.. i think i put them in the wrong locations..

the 4 on top and 4 on the bottom of the valve covers are cap nuts... but there are 4 that are shorter than the other four,.. i cannot remember if the shorter 4 cap bolts go on the top or the bottom of the valve cover.. it does make a difference cuz the seal will not be compressed properly and leak

somebody save me
