model 71 vs 73 Hazard flasher switch or 4-way switch


Recommended Posts


i have recently noticed my stock of used but good flasher

switches is nearly gone. i have parted out over fifty cars and

at least a solid third of them were model 71. the flasher has

6 wire connection. the model 73 has 8 and a resistor across

the back of it.

so my question to the EE's in the crowd, or the learned of

this clan that are good at such stuff, can a model 73 unit be

installed with minor wiring changes performed outside of the

unit to make it operate correctly when installed in the model

71 location. something like a pigtail harness that wires into

the existing plug.

anyone with some comments, fire away. by the way

i have plenty of model 73 switches that are new, just not

model 71 type. maybe they cross over the VW stuff.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
