That looks like the exact set up the I had. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
I took over the covers for the front heater (to the left of the Driver's seat) - the coolant lines from the engine come in from the front left. One line goes into your driver's heater - and comes out of there to the back of the bus... loops back and goes back to the engine. I shut the valves - used claps on the lines I was cutting - and just went from the coolant out line from the driver's heater back to the engine - and didn't need to buy anything - I did buy a new hose clamp.
I can't tell if these pictures help.
I am trying to up load the video I did - I hope that helps. I hope these upload - I am so bad at Youtube uploading stuff...
Anyway. This was me reasoning with myself... It can be done.
This was what I did - I would clamp the hose before cutting it - but otherwise, I really only lost a little coolant - just have a bucket or two handy.
Let me know if that works for you!

I have some pics of that, but don't want to start turning knobs in there.
I was going to keep it originally, but today I decided to take it out but it's just sitting there pulled away from the wall at this point (see video) until I find out what to do with the hoses and wires. I have the guy coming out tomorrow to take measurements of the floor for the diamond plating, so that's another reason why I wanted to get it out of there.
