  • Re: Namco Stick Appreciation!

    Picked up a Namco stick last week, been wanting one for awhile. I really like the buttons, PS14GN>Namco Button>PS14G imo. I swapped in sanwa and seimitsu microswitches, the sanwa felt slightly better so i went with those. The stick def needed to go, i wanted to keep the stick appearance as stock as possible, so no LS32. Most ppl put in JLF's im not a fan of JLF in general so i decided to give the hayabusa a try. Installing it was just like a JLF basically. Had to cut out a bigger section of plastic to fit the haya. Obviously in stock form the haya is too big, the case wont close. Im going to have the stock haya shaft shortened by 8mm so it will sit at 24mm when mounted with no spacers. This is being done at my job, and they are backed up so i have no idea when i will be getting it back.
    For the meantime I tried installing the Namco shaft and actuator as a temporary thing. The Namco actuator is too wide and binds up when inputting diagonals. So i modified the haya actuator and cut it down to the namco actuator length. I sanded it down afew times until it fit properly. It was alittle too long after my first trim(pic). It was still binding up alittle so i swapped out the pressure spring base with the namco stick just to try it. Ended up making a difference. When it was all said and done the stick was mounted at correct height.It feels very stiff and short, ive done shaft swap mods on other sticks with the jlf/ls56, and the haya with this mod feels alittle off. I tested it out on ST and I was able to do all my stuff, its def good enough as a place holder until my short shaft is done.
    Thought id share the install incase anybody was curious in doing it.

    Very nice for your first attempt. You gotta do me a favor though and get some type of x-acto knife and trim up that artwork so it's in line with the plexi.

    Also suggest using some stainless screws to hold your plexi on the stick. Those screws your using are going to rusty up, and quick

    How shallow is the namco case compared to the hori fighting stick (PS/NEO/SS) line? Just curious since ive been doing alot of hori stick mods lately.


    The dimensions are similar, but with the old school Hori FS range you can drop in something like a LS-56 with no hassle what so ever. However there's no escaping the pain that a Namco stick will give you when modding it.

    Actually to mount a LS56 at the proper height and keeping the orginal shaft/cover its alot harder. Had to modify shaft and actuator.

    Hori Fighting Stick Neo 2 with a Seimitsu LS56 and Seimitsu PS14G buttons. Just modded this for a member. Due to shallow case i had to modify the LS56 shaft to match the bottom half of the Hori shaft. Other methods like swapping shafts didnt work because stick height was coming out to about 20.5mm
