Hello,
I've got two questions about parts on the car that I'm not sure what they do.

Above the gas tank is what looks like an accumulator or some sort of additional tank. Does anyone know what the function of this tank is?

Also, there is a button on the steering colomn below the steering wheel next to the turn signal. It is a black push-button and when engaged makes a click in the engine comapartment. When the engine is running and the button is pushed it seems like the engine gets flooded and dies.

Thanks for answering if you can.

As for the button, I think someone added a cold start injector button for unknown reasons. I have seen this on one other 107.
Don't know about the tank deal. Someone will.

I have a '73 and I don't have a button like that. Looked in the owner's manual and no reference to it either.

It's an expansion tank.
