Which also includes 2 ports for the rocker box vents. You should plug those 
ports now.

There is no special AC air cleaner, they just rotated the normal one, but this 
usually didn't work very well. Personally, I had the type 3 AC, so I'd just 
take it off and put things back to their useful and functional norm.

Not sure which part you're referring to. I have several good used '71 air 
cleaners here. The metal extension should be easy to come up with. The rubber 
connecting bellows will be harder to find in good condition.
