    they only go in one way,the ls2 ones and the holes in the lifter go towards the other side of the motor.

    the holes in the lifter cant go towards the other side of the motor because when they sit in the trays it either points to the back of the block or front of block.

    well I was going to mention that ,the ones in my ls2 do,other GM lifters have them in the sides,sorry forgot to cover mylol
    heres a shot of my new shortblock see under the top of gasket there are places in the block where the trays go on the ls2 they can only go in one way,I beleive on earlier ls1s does not matter how you put trays in.

    Yeah, it's also a good idea to drill 3/4 to 1/2 inch holes in the lifter trays to assist in oil flow/management. The holes in the trays face the direction of whichever side your on. Example: Driver side tray holes go in facing the driver's side tire. I have a 98 LS1 so the direction of the tray isn't in play. However whichever side you drill the holes on-that side better face the applicable direction (away from the engine/manifold) The "how to build LS1/LS6 V-8's" book by Handzel emphasizes this.....
