It had a hose that connected to the absorption cannister, which was part of the emissions control system. Looks like all the emission components have been removed. I copied your picture and indicated where the smog pump was mounted and where the cylinder head ports have been plugged after the air injector rail was removed. I know, because I own a 70 roadster and did the same thing when I rebuilt the engine back in the late 70s. I copied an illustration of the emission controls from online catalog at www.mossmotors.com that show all the emission controls.
