1.Double 4 Pin Wave 1/2 will have two 4 pin cables + a 40 pin IDE connection
2. Single 5 Pin is easy, it will only have the 1 cable which is5 pin
3. On Costco and some wave 3 we have see the double 4 pin + a 12 pin connection
4. These will NOT work on Burgertime. There is no PNP cable for that machine.

Can we answer what you have? Yes send us a pic if you do not understand. Can we tell you without a pic because you bought it from a certain store? No. A1U seems to just install stuff at random :/

Marginal improvement over wave 3

Installed with heavier 6lb spring but no real improvement over wave 3 hardware.

Made for a very impressive upgrade

If your on the fence of replacing stock sticks with the sanwa definitely do it! Night and day difference.

I replaced my Arcade 1up 3/4 cabinet Ms Pac Man original stick with this. I see absolutely no difference. The response time is same or slower than Arcade 1up. Going one direction and having to reverse direction quickly often results in gettting killed. I've ordered higher pound springs, but I don't think that is the issue...... I believe it's the swtiches and dead space between the moment one direction is activated and the next direction touched/activated.

If you have a 4 way game like pacman make sure you change the gate to 4 way. It is extremely important or it will play very poorly. See

Great product and support.

The Sanwa joystick is a great improvement on my Arcade 1up PacMan legacy cabinet. Shane was very helpful in predicting the cable I would need so that I could have the joystick and new arcade arrive at the same time. The diyretroarcade videos showed me everything that I needed to do the installation.

I will definitely use this vendor again when the opportunity arises.

Perfect A1Up replacements!

These sticks especially shine when paired with an octo gate and 4lb spring (imo).

DIY Retro Rocks!!
