'71 is a year by itself. But as far as I am concerned, it is one of the
better years. I drive one myself as a daily driver, and it is Still
Sorry to say, that switch is a year by itself. I would keep searching
for a replacement. I have seen them listed, but a little expensive. If
you can't find one, your best bet would be to go with a '72-'73. Then
you are sharing parts with Type 1's, and a little more findable.
As for the harness, I wouldn't replace the harness unless absolutely as
a last resort. It is not an easy job. The T-3 harnesses are just about a
custom made unit, and very expensive.
