Mojo Replacement switches
« on: April 11, 2007, 05:03:15 PM »
I finally found a replacement switch I am happy with. They are readily available and can be ordered on line from Allied Electronics http://www.alliedelec.com/. The part numbers are 747-0022 and 747-0019. The magnetic one is an on/on/on and the piezo one is an on/off/on. What makes these better? The contacts are sealed and the detent spring is light making it easy to flip the switch. The barrel is the same size as the standard switch so no wood has to be removed and no special bushings need to be made for a small barrel. The levers are extra long making them easier to find and easier to switch. Since the wires going to the switches are really small the solder eyes are plenty big enough. They are light weight and small so they leave even more room in the cavity then the stock switches. What is bad well they aren't cheap and this is the only place I could find that sells them so you have shipping and handling added. A pair of switches and shipping will run about $30. The install was a straight swap nothing tricky.

Very cool, Alex!  Thanks for doing the search for these!  I guess I'll order up a set when I order the pickups for my Mojo.

Alex,

Do they also have a connector for the battery wires that you like?

The one in the picture is too big I'll look for a smaller one. [;)]

Alex.. Do the black nuts that the guitar came with match the threads of these switches? Thanks!

These are to replace the Mojo switches that are notoriously weak. My Mojo didn't come with black nuts. The thread does not match that of the Mojo switches. If you do want to use this switch on your 1st gen Fly the threads do match the switches and therefore the black nuts. These switches might work for the 1st gen Flys if you do a PTP conversion and wired them up the same as a Mojo. I really like the fact that the lever is longer then the 1st gen levers.

I asked because I replaced my Mag/Peizo switch with a DPDT for coil tap switch. The black nut had a different thread and could not put use it.

I just ordered some battery disconnect plugs. These look to be the smallest available but I wait till they come to tell if they are any good. If they are I'll post new thread with part numbers. You have to order these in parts but they are cheap.

The part number 774-0022 is probably 747-0022. 774-0022 is a battery charger.

You are absolutely right. I changed it in the text I wrote. Thats a reason I posted a picture of the bags with the part numbers on them just in case I made a mistake.[:I]

Hi Alex, I hoped that you wouldn't mind running your eye over the image below to see if the toggles listed will be a good replacement for my Classic's toggles. I'm in the UK so it's just not economic to order the parts from Alliedelec.

I'm hoping for a straight swop with no drilling involved or bush making.

This is the blurd from the manufactorer :

Professional Toggle Switches.
Panel Cut Out ø12mm IP67 Panel Seal.
Available in 2,3 and 4 pole configurations, CECC approvals, panel and pc mount, front panel sealing option. Gold or silver contacts, chrome or matt black finish actuator, lever lock options.

I know gold is the best contactor material out there, so I assume that this would be the best option, but I'm a little concerned about it's durability, any thoughts ?

The web address if anyones interested : http://www.apem.co.uk/toggles.html

thanks
Peter

If I am reading that correctly that does look correct should work just fine. Those switches will out live us in gold or silver.
