This is it. You did the right thing.  ;-)

If you watch ebay, and maybe call around, you will eventually find one, but a 
better option might be to try to fix the one you've got. What, exactly, has 
gone wrong with it? Some typical problems with these have rather simple fixes.

71 is a good year and the wires should not have aged that badly. Were they beat 
up by a previous owner, or has it lived its live in Death Valley? You're very 
unlikely to ever find a NEW harness, but you might find a good used one. I 
believe I have 2 here. In general, however, I don't recommend this. It's a LOT 
more work than you expect and you may never get it all hooked back up again 

There are also at least 3 different harnesses: a front wiring harness, a mid to 
rear harness, and a FI wiring harness, plus lots of individual wires. Which 
ones are you having a problem with and what seems to be the problem?
