The rods and caps are numbered. you need new rod bolts anyway.

Definately a good idea to have them resized with new bolts.

i get people who mix up rod caps regularly, you can get the correct cap on the rod by matching up the scratch marks that are on the inside if the rod bore. the hone makes a destinctive pattern on each rod. look closely and you will see how they cross the parting line, the correct one will line up perfectly.
