That Ruger cylinder you want is NOT a "drop-in".

Factory dual cylinder guns have both cylinders fitted to the frame.

The ratchet-to-endbearing dimension must be fitted by selecting and/or grinding on the cylinder. If you buy a used cylinder, it very likely will either be too long (fitting necessary), or too short (excessive barrel-to-cylinder gap and cylinder end shake).
Re-timing of the revolver should not be necessary if the ratchet is orginal, although it should be checked, of course.
