Default Correct Front Cover Bolts?

Some of our bolts got mixed up during our engine reassembly and I need to know if I have the correct bolt for the Front Cover. Its a Dal Overhead Cam out of a 97 SC2. Below is a pic of what I have. There are some short ones(2.0mm long) without shoulders and then some 3.5mm ones with a shoulder and then some 4mm long ones with a shoulder.



Appreciate it thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The small 10mm ones I don't think you have enough of in the picture (upper right).

The longer ones with more of a unthreaded portion (bottom 5) I believe go to the power steering pump. A couple on the upper left look like they might go to the A/C mounting bracket.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

This is what you should have. There are 18 bolts in this picture, the 15 timing cover bolts and 3 of the 4 small ones from the bottom of the oil pan that attach to the bottom of the timing cover, there is one oil pan bolt missing from the picture. 14 of the timing cover bolts look the same, and there is the one skinny one in the upper left of the picture that, if my memory serves, goes in the top hole of the two in the center of the cover. For that skinny one, try it out and see what hole it fits in.

I'll agree with fetchitfido, what you have in your picture is likely PS pump and AC bracket bolts. Perhaps the smallest ones are oil pan bolts but you would have to try them out.

I know this is after the fact, but it's best to have a system to contain and organize the disassembly process. Oldnuc recommends a beer flat, some ziploc bags, and a marker to label everything with, you don't have to use a beer flat so cardboard boxes will do, but the ziplocs and marker are not optional. Stuff still crawled away on me that I had to hunt down, and I was well organized.
