Yes, but isn't the distance between the studs and cam different side to side so you cant put them on backwards?

Does the cam turn? Having the caps on the wrong way will bind it up. Valve spring tension on the lobes is the only thing that prevents it from easily turning when the caps are on correctly. There ought to be a few places where you can rotate the cam back and forth a bit.
