the euro sport is the same as the lumina base just with a body kit, stiffer suspension, and dual exhaust.
but on the 3.1 engine the pushrods are all the same length, but depending on the stroke each cylinder is on the pushrod may be in a different position.
you are assuming that every pushrod should be in the rest state. that is not true. if the cylinder you are installing the pushrod for is on the intake stroke when you install the intake valve pushrod and tighten the rocker arm nut the valve will procede to open like it should be open for the intake stroke.
this is normal and its nothing wrong with it.

SOURCE: how tight to tighten valve cover
I highly recommend you buy a Hanes/Chilton manual for your make and model of car. The manual will tell you inch pounds and torque sequence for tightening the vale cover back on. Usually the sequence works from the center and works it way to the outside bolts. Please rate this reply if you found this helpful.

All you have to do is get a 3/8 ratchet or a wrench and just snug the bolts up to about 10 ft.lbs.of torque then go back and do all the bolts again to about 15 ft.lbs. of torque and you should be good to go.Basically 15ft.lbs. is just using one hand and snug it down with light pull of ratchet.

Install pushrode and rocker arms and rocker arm nuts. Tighten nuts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
Install valve cover and tighten bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
