    Refurb old seimitsu joystick

    I have a Sega Astro City that I just came into. I replaced the buttons but I'm trying to just refurb the worn joysticks. They are seimitsu ls-32's. Player 1 has more wear. It has more travel more to reach contacts when going back and forward.

    My question is, can I just buy the the parts that cause the the joystick to travel more side to side? If so what parts do I need?

    Thanks before hand.

    You can buy Seimitsu LS32 refurb kits, I bought a couple off of Kernow on this forum a while ago, maybe give him a shout he had quite a few at the time.

    This will make your sticks shiny and new.

    Were your sticks pretty loose that cause travel/lag? What parts did the kit include? I'll try PM Kernow. Thanks

    Sounds to me like you need to replace the spring and actuator. Pretty simple actually.

    speaking of seimitsu joysticks, i need a ls-56 spring receiver. its the little red piece that goes at the bottom.

    https://www.akishop.jp/joystick-part...t-9_rec_spring

    akishop has it. its less than a dollar but shipping is like 6 bucks

    anybody know of a place in the states that might have them? i emailed focusattack but it wasnt helpful

    Best stay away from akishop altogether. Their turnaround time and communication has become ridiculous.

    Focus Attack is a really good place to look for joystick bits and pieces...plus they carry this stuff....
    https://www.focusattack.com/fa-dab-s...tsu-joysticks/

    which is great, cause you get it for much cheaper than a whole friggin tube...I have purchased from them several times, and they have great shipping and communication.

    Hope it helps at all....also...Paradise arcade generally has parts for the semitsu/sanwa lines of sticks...but if all else fails...new sticks are pretty cheap.

    Best of luck!
