Great that you were able to find one local. The 73 block should be dual pattern allowing you to use the 9-inch bellhousing.

Basically, no gap rings are comprised of two rings, each approximately half as thick as a standard ring, that are installed in one piston ring slot phased 180 degrees to each other. This creates no discernable gap in the ring.
