Sanwa JLF Shaft vs JLW Shaft

(1/4) > >>

thelanranger:
Does anyone know if the shaft in these two joysticks is interchangable? I'm having a lot of trouble getting straight answers from anyone and I don't have a JLF anything to compare. It seems like the lower end of the JLF is identical (from the underside of the rest to the bottom where the snap ring goes). Is there any reason why I couldn't use one of these on a JLW body/Ultrastik body?

BadMouth:
99% sure they are not interchangeable.  IIRC the JLW has a bigger diameter on parts.  Gimme a half hour & I'll dig out parts to verify.

pbj:
Yeah, my recollection is that JLW has a thicker diameter shaft.  If BadMouth doesn't take measurements, I can.

BadMouth:
Oops, forgot until browsing BYOAC hours later.  Yeah, they are way different.  JLW top, JLF bottom.  The only spec they have in common is the balltop threads.

What are you trying to accomplish?

If it's making balltops light up, I refuse to participate in any way.
