So I got around to modding my friends Injustice stick with some SW-68 microswitches for the Push buttons
The Joystick got modded with an Sanwa JLF square gate, JLF’s pivot, metal washer, PAS JLF 2 lbf Custom Spring and PAS red anodized actuator.
I found out you can get away with the stock shaft if you just change out the pivot, spring and actuator. The particular Injustice Joystick had lubrication so I did not add any more grease.
I got the best fit and response out of the red actuator over the other oversized actuators Paradise arcade sold (blue was overdoing it). I did found out the stock Actuator and spring cover is too tight of a fit for a sanwa shaft.
And any spring stronger than the default JLF spring is fine, which by the way the JLF spring has more resistance that the stock Qanba spring.
I forgot to order a spring cover, and tried to use the Qanba spring cover. The whole spring assembly bunched up and the stick was so loose you though I left the spring cover out.
Yeah the controller’s buttons feels better with the Sanwa button switches, and the joystick is tighter and more responsive with a new pivot, spring and actuator.
But it is not the same to me as a full Sanwa or Seimitsu mod.
Overall if you want to be frugal or keep the existing LED lighting the SW-68 micro switches and JLF parts swap is fine for a Injustice stick, but it does not beat a full mod.
