Where do these parts go?

I had taken my block and cylinders in to a shop to have the gaskets cleaned off. They ended up removing some parts, and I'm not sure where they go!

I have 6 bushings/spacers. I found that 2 (per cylinder) can fit at the base of two head studs. That leaves 2 unaccounted for.

However the service manual page 4-3 shows 2 on top of and 1 below the cylinder. Not two below the cylinder. I already have 1 (per cylinder) attached to the bottom of the head (also pictured), so I still don't know where they go.

I also have some sort of rubber or plastic tube, and what I suppose to be the oil pressure sender.

The threaded bit is the oil pressure sender, correct. That much I know. I don't know about the other parts, though, hopefully somebody with more internal engine experience will chime in.

The service manual exploded diagrams don't include quantities, so it's difficult to know how many go where.
It's also not easy to find the correct diagram in the service manual, when you don't know what you're looking for.

I looked at some different exploded diagrams, with part counts.

This one shows qty 4 of part 92043 (PIN,11X14X12.3 92043-1266), but only 1 visible.

I am guessing it's around the two studs that are opposite the cam chain.

This one shows qty 4 of part 92043A (PIN,11X14X12.3 92043-1266), with all 4 visible.

Since 2 are still mounted in the base of the head, I think that gives me the location of the 6 that I have sitting loose!

It looks like the oil pressure sender goes somewhere towards the front of the engine, above the oil filter.

I'm down to that last mystery piece. It appears to be some sort of oil or coolant guide.

I FOUND IT!!!
92059 ("TUBE" 92059-1620). I'm not sure the rotational orientation though. The flange only goes halfway around.

This is why I'm glad I took pictures of every piece I took off!
I'd hate to have to look through diagrams for every single little piece!
