All the Triumph engines i have worked on have had the caps numbers etched on so shouldn't be a problem.

Provided they came from that block......  Actually, if the numbers are a set they'll probably be fine.  One of my 2.5 engines turned out to have two #3 caps and I don't think either was from the original block.  It also had "shims" made from a coke can to allow it to turn.  Made some odd noises when warm.....  That's the one I fired up on the garage floor and was so impressed with the oil pressure I went to the trouble of putting it in the car.........  Cold oil pressure means nothing!
