Rocker bridge issue

I am rebuilding my 78 258 and snapped a bridge when installing. Mine are the one piece bridges. I ordered a new bridge from Omix ADA (the website pictured the one piece that I have)and what arrived is the 3 piece. Omix ADA is still trying to figure things out so:

1. Will this bridge work for my motor?
2. Is it ok to mix and match the 1 piece and 3 piece bridges? Or should I get a whole set of the 3 piece bridges?



'78 Rebuilt 4.2 258, T150, Spicer 20, Dana 30 front, AMC 20 rear
'80 CJ7 frame
Corrected: '84 CJ Tub

I can see the one piece being possibly stronger. Either "should be" fine in a low rpm Jeep engine.
