I'm wondering the same. My 73 has one that is getting bas and I work around it very carefully. I don't ave the qc components connected either. The pump is not connected to anything ane the condenser is my trans cooler roght now.

Hey Dave, do you have a pic of the "H" pipe? Couldn't be hard to make.
