Three questions--helping a new '02 owner who...

recently bought a very nice Sahara 75 from Alabama.

It has a 32DRS Weber on it....looks like a 32/36 but accel pump is on the opposite side and the manual choke cable comes out the carb's left side (towards the brake fluid reservoir) vs out the back side pointing towards the firewall. What the heck is this thing? What's it go to?

Second question: it periodically pops out of reverse gear while being backed up. Only reverse, not any forward gear. Never had this happen on an '02...any thoughts?

Another unique situation. Sometimes, but not always, the hazard switch blinks in synch with the turn signal repeater lamp in the instrument cluster. Anyone run across this? Doesn't seem to affect turn signal or flasher operation...just looks a little odd.

Thoughts and ideas appreciated...

does exactly that on one of my 02s. I suspect it's a switch malfunction, but I haven't been able to prove it. When on, the haz switch should connect together four circuits: the left lights, the right lights, the flasher relay, and the haz switch light. (It also switches the flasher power from ignition to battery). When it works as you describe with the switch off, I suspect the switch is connecting its light to one of the other circuits. It might be due to a sloppy detent finger or trails of contact material inside the switch.

    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
