Valve Cover Stud Length

Shouldn't they all be the same? Check out this photo of two exhaust-side valve cover studs removed from my 2.2...



The short one on the bottom was unique among all the studs, so I am guessing that it was a replacement. The top one extends almost to the left edge of the nut, making it a full 50mm long. Can someone please confirm that they all should be the same?

looks like the bottom one is an exhaust stud. I'm pretty sure they're different.

They both came off the exhaust side valve covers. The left side studs were all the same, and the shorter one came off the right side. I am almost certain that someone just replaced this one at some point, but I was hoping to verify this with the help of the forum.

All the studs on my 2.2 are the same length. Looks like a replacement. Just probably what was handy at the time. People seem to do that, the older the engine, the more odd stuff you find. I do a lot of 4 cyl stuff and I have yet to find a virgin motor.
