I don't know what the results will be, but rods are machined as a unit and should always be put back together as that unit.

You'll have to bite the bullet and remove the pan and put the caps on the correct rods.

Now having said that, I once knew a guy who could mix and match engine parts and always come out smelling like a rose.

I only know if I did that, the engine would blow up.
