after i pulled all of the valve lilfters out this morning, i realized there is a hole {maybe some type of oil passage} on one side of each lifter. does it matter which side the hole faces when i put them back it (front or rear of engine) or does it even matter??

It doesn't say anything in my Haynes manual.

That is the oil galley that pressurizes the lifters and sends oil through them and up the push rods to the rockers. Doesn't matter what side the oil hole is on, when it enters that galley it receives oil pressure. All you have to do is put them in with the rollers somewhat in line with the cam lobe and when you put the lifter guide back on it lines them up straight.
