New Astro City Joystick mounting

Post by FriedGoat » April 29th, 2018, 9:59 pm

I'm just about to take the plunge and fix this horrible CP that my astro city has...
Image

The panel is rusty as anything, the buttons (screw ins) have all been glued in, and the joysticks are also screw ins and glued in. It's been a fun time with the dremel cutting them out permanently.
So i'm just on arcadeworlduk with a basket full of seimitsu buttons and joysticks but i'm not too sure about how to mount this thing to my panel?

My panel looks like this (although the mounts are all bent currently)
Image
And it looks to me like the standard mount wont fit these two little brackets I have..

I'm trying to get a LS-32 seimitsu, but it has a mounting option, do I want SS or SE plate?

Cheers,

The mount plate you have in the photo is for the Sanwa JLF, for Seimitsu joysticks on a Sega panel (your panel) you will need a pair of "NA" mounting plates which is currently OOP, but I beleive focusattack.com still sells them.

These might work for seimitsu, thought the stick might sit a little lower than it should.

I think you will be better off with Sanwa sticks with this plate:

My favorite sanwa mod is with the kowal actuator and 8-way gate:

Hey no that is perfect, I for some reason assumed it was supposed to be seimitsu. That’s great, sanwa stuff it is!
Thank you for the help!

Well i really screwed this up.
that image was just an example, I didn't actually have a plate I just had those 2 brackets on my control panel.

Now my bits have arrived and I actually DO have that plate on the sanwa sticks which is not only the wrong size to mount to those brackets, even if it did it would make the joystick incredibly short.

How can I solve this problem by the weekend, I wanted to get the control panel sorted by the bank holiday :-o

Can you take a pic of your actual CP so we can recommend the correct mount plates?

I'm a little confused if you are saying the sanwa https://www.focusattack.com/sanwa-jlf-p ... ing-plate/ won't fit, because the image of the CP you posted is compatible.

The sanwa didn't fit with the standard plates, ended up ordering the S plates and it fits like a dream!

Yes, M4 bolts to install the sticks. M4 x 16 is long enough in my experience
