(ELECTRICAL) Adjusting the Over-rev Buzzer

I thought I would repost this here for posterity.

James S. King originally mentioned something on "the big list" ([email protected]) that he came up with a method to adjust the over-rev buzzer on the '84 GSL-SE that he used to own. He was a little surprised that he was bombarbed with so many requests for this tip. What follows are his comments. Thank him at [email protected].

Ok guys, here it is. I'd no idea this would be so popular. Geez. I scanned the page. It is attached as a JPG file. Sorry, the original was pencil on paper, so it's not too sharp. Maybe someone could forward this to somebody that maintains a 1st gen FAQ site.

The hardest part about this is getting the instrument cluster *out*. AFAIK, you have to remove the steering wheel, and getting mine off the shaft practically requied a act-of-god. I used a generic gear puller and it was still a battle to get the wheel off the splines. Watch out, if you pull too hard on the wheel, the entire shaft will slide back out of the colapsable section. That's probably not a good thing. With a lot of tension applied by the puller, I tapped the puller shaft with a hammer and pounded on the steering wheel rim with my fist till the vibrations finally got it to pop loose with a loud bang. Be careful and patient. Probably would come right off if you used the special Mazda SST, but who has that?

Don't forget to unclip the speedo cable from the back of the speedometer before you pull the cluster out!

Good luck!
