Only one side was leaking, so I only needed two washers to fix my problem. The guy at NAPA pulled up a diagram of the 730-2922 kit and it shows what looked like three washers and an "O" ring. However, two of the washers were joined together, making sort of a figure 8. Each washer was connected to other by some type of spacing arrangement that placed the washers a couple of inches apart (visual estimate). I couldn't tell from the photo what the connecting piece was made out of - metal, gasket material, etc.
So since there was only one single/individual washer in the kit, I would have needed two kits and used the one, single/individual washer from each kit.
Anyway, my problem is solved by using the two washer kit I bought from O'Reilly's; cost of the washer kit was $4.00. They're installed, coolant topped off and system bled. My son took the car out for, what I later learned, a HIGH SPEED run and all's-well; no leak. More than one way to skin a cat. LOL
Thanks for all the feed-back and help.
