No, you've very nicely described the 68-71 FI breather setup.

72-3 FI breather setup has 2 plastic plugs on top, no connection underneath 
to the filler pipe, a hose that goes to the FI intake air distributor from a 
plastic check valve, and no hose to the air cleaner.

Still waiting to hear what he really has....
