Mark III went full auto.

Well, it's been working great but at today's Steel Challenge match my Mark III Hunter went full auto and then the trigger would not reset. No big deal, things happen.

I ordered a Volquartsen Kit for it and found that the kit does not come with a bushing for the magazine disconnect. I'm a little confused because VQ says to use the Mark II bushing and hammer. Did I buy the wrong kit?

I think I should have gotten the parts separate instead of the kit. What bushing do I need with the kit?

From their website

MKII Kit also includes a Volquartsen MKII Hammer Bushing and can be used when eliminating the magazine disconnect feature in the Ruger MKIII. Please note the only way we recommend to remove the magazine disconnect in the Ruger MKIII is by using the MKII Kit that includes the MKII Hammer Bushing.

And this bit

The Accurizing Kit for the Ruger MKIII does not include the hammer bushing. This is only included in the MKII Kit.

Im doing the exact same thing. I had to make sure I ordered the mkII kit for my mkIII

Order one of Sam Lams replacement bushings from SGW that will take care of the bushing question.

Problem was easy, a broken sear. Today I installed a Volquartsen Accurizing Kit with a new sear and problem is solved. Trigger pull is now 1 lb and 14 oz as measured with my Lyman Digital Scale with no take-up and over travel.

That's a pretty strange looking sear. It looks like some kind of black polymer. Where did you get it?

It's metal. That's the original sear from Ruger. Color could be off do to the lighting when I took the picture.
