Did your engine come with those studs?
I upgraded the bolts to studs, also on the right side, so I can easily remove the clutch cover. I did try 415 chain, but it was too tight. I could'nt put the master link to connect the chain. And 415 chains are very heavy... I already slotted the left plate, but still won't fit. Also, I was afraid that the jackshaft might get misaligned.
Regardless if it's left or wrong, the opposite is always right.
