You need everything except the oil tank, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to get the tank, too, if the price is reasonable as a package!

The 'everything' includes all of the brackets, braces, and clips for the cooler, lines, etc. You especially need both pieces of the two-piece scavenge line that started production in 1974, as the '73 line was one-piece for the cooler setup. Sometimes the hard scavenge line is left attached to the engine and is not available with the car's other pieces in a salvage yard!!!

One very important thing to check for, or ask about, is damage to the thermostat threads at all four connetions! After this many years, it is possible that corrosion on the fittings makes detaching the lines impossible to do without ruining the threads. If the system is still fully assembled at this point, my suggestion is to demand & require that 9% vinegar for pickling be brushed and sprayed over all of the thermostat fittings, repeatedly, for over an hour before disassembly is attempted! If bubbling/fizzing occurs, continue spraying and brushing untill all fizzing stops before starting disassembly. Haste in disassembly can result in ruining the thermostat, which will require purchasing a new one!
