Where Did These Ground Wires Go??

long story short i put a new engine in and for the life of me cant remember where i took the ground wire off the engine..

in pic 1, the ground travels with the power wire that goes from the fuse box to the starter, the other end goes to the frame behind the bumper (the black wire with the stud)

Pic 2- these are some other wires that i believe went with that ground wire on the stud, they come out of the loom with the oil pressure sensor wires

yes you are correct, ground wires can go almost anywhere on the same part.., i should be able to put them back on anywhere, the only thing thats stopping me is picture 2 with the 2 smaller wires, if they were grounded to the frame and not then engine there is a possibility that something could short or not work...last year i swapped an engine in my 90 Celica and i forgot a single ground wire about half the size of the small ones on the back of the head and it caused it only to have an irregular spark
