Putting the motor back together. Over my head

Long story short i ended up too deep in this project to not finish it and now im prolly going to need some help. The motor had a bad piston and i got the heads resurfaced and valve seats done. I put a new piston in and now have the motor mostly back together. I do have a couple of questions though. Its been 2 months since i took this apart and i didnt think it be that long and didnt take good enough notes.

First thing, What im i forgetting here? I went to put the upper oil pan back on and there are six bolt holes and i have the bolts but have no clue what the bolts hold on. Oops.

The other question i have is about flushing and priming the oil and fuel systems. What can i do to make 100% sure no crap ends up in the injectors on start up? My biggest concern is the fuel lines in the head being perfectly clean. Any thoughts? Im planning to leave the FICM unplugged and turn it over for several minutes before start up but what can i do before i put the motor back in the truck to make damn sure i dont take out an injector on startup.

If you are talking about the 3 pairs of holes down the middle of the pan into the block, they only hold the pan. Ford eliminated those on later engines because they figured out that they weren't needed.

What that guys said! I ran into the same thing when I got my new block. I was like aw crap! Your upper oil pan will be fine without those bolts in there.
