For reference, there’s two models of Seimitsu sticks. The “01” specifies they’re for the 5-pin harness.

Mounting screws from memory are M3?

Can I use the 5 pin joysticks with my 8 pin harness?

The screws are M4, for Astro Panels. Just checked my stash.

Here’s an article that might help from @emphatichttp://www.emphatic.se/?p=188

I assume you just daisy chain the ground to each direction of the stick and also connect each direction separately.

You could just convert it if you want, or wire up a new harness.

As far as the grounds, just use a cap connector and crimp them all together. Official harnesses from SEGA for Astro, Blast, and NNC come that way (button/stick grounds crimped into cap connector).

I got my JST connectors in and was ready to unify the grounds but then I noticed my 5 pin JST connector was too small.

I’m at the point where I wanna say $@&! it and just solder leads onto the male pins but I know not to trust that part of my brain in this hobby.

Does anyone where I can find a JST 5 pin female connector for my LS-32-01-SS joysticks.

The afternoon was not lost though.

We managed to pull out the wiring from the troublesome “dead one” and replaced every component with my “parts machine” internals.

I tested all four of my Aeros with glorious original Nanaos and recaps and got all 4 Running simultaneously. It almost brought a tear to my eye.

Left to do:
JST joysticks to original wiring harness.
Wheel sets x3
locks (dreading this one)
That’s it.. Onto the Domy Theater after these tasks

Yeah I usually order directly from JST but they aren't taking new orders now because of their backlog. PM me and I'll send you one. Ive got a few here.

I got chance to tinker yesterday..

Thanks for the help guys, with the 8-pin fork to 5-pin JST harness.

After tying the 4 grounds into one. I messed with the directional till they were proper. I was going to use to use small wire nuts but felt like that was too lazy and messy. After being inspired by @opt2not's custom harnesses I sat down and soldered each connection with a heatshrink.

Now I have to replicate my work 5 more times until I populate the final three Aero's with new LS-32-SS's

Now I can play shitty bootleg Ms. Pac man all day long...

No. I haven’t crimped those kits yet. @bartre hooked me up with 2 sets of leads and refused to let me pay for shipping for it. Big shout to the man actually.

I’ll be crimping those kits for the last 2 joysticks..
