They dont stock it because nobody stocks rings. Engines dont get rebuilt anymore. They get replaced.
Also, if you were to rebuild an engine and bore it .020 over you need .020 over pistons. The .020 over pistons come with the .020 over rings. And my distributor has 10 of those in stock. That is assuming your engine is 303442-1134-A1 since I believe you have a misprint in your original post.
