I am having a problem with my HRAP3 ball top. It’s actually a Seimitsu LB-39 Clear Joystick Ball Top that I put in when I added Sanwa buttons. It was fine for quite a while (4-5 months). But on Monday, the ball top got loose so I had to crack the thing open again and tighten it up. Last night I started playing some SF4 and the ball came loose again.
Needless to say, I would rather not have to open it up twice a week to tighten up the balltop. I was thinking about putting some sort of adhesive on the the threads before I tighten it back up.
Has anyone else ever had a problem with a ball top continuously coming loose? Also, what do you guys think of my adhesive on the ball’s threads idea? Any suggestions as to what type of adhesive would work well for this application? Do you think I need to replace the balltop or the shaft?
Thanks guys. I’ve been searching the forums since Monday trying to find a similar problem, but I could not find one. So I broke down and created a thread. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
