The mag toggle on my Mojo is pretty darn stiff. So stiff it has to be forced into every position by that I mean that it doesn't reach a point and then just snap into the position your moving it. No biggie as it works just fine.

Even so I saw this thread and figured I would take the backing off and have a look. I've taken the back off before but didn't pay attention to the switches.

So what's up with those switches??? I haven't seen switches like those in anything made in the last 30 years! The mechanisms are huge.

As long as they work I don't care but does anyone know why they aren't just using modern style encased switches?

Time for a dumb question, Maybe?

The switches that are mentioned
747-0022 and the 747-0019
The -0022 is in stock and the -0019 is not, hasn't been for awhile.

On my fly mojo the front toggle is neck - both - bridge and the piezo toggle is mags - blend(mono) - piezo. Why do you need the -0019 (on-off-on). Couldn't I just use the -0022 for both.

Also, anyone found another source?

Thanks for any answers in advance.

The on/off/on switch just grounds each pickup you don't want to use. So you ground the piezo to play the mag and ground the mag to hear the piezo so to hear both you need off so neither is grounded.

You can put the manufactures part number and name in Google you might find another source.

Yes that will work fine that is exactly the same specs as the one above. Same bushing and lever size.

Thanks for looking at the switch for me, I appreciate it. Switches are on the way from Allied and Digikey.

Thanks again.

Here is a picture that I got from Parker for the wiring diagram. It goes to my facebook page on the T-Shirt Hell album.

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.

Alex thanks for getting the switch part numbers!! The new fly switches are very cheap and I need to free cavity space to fit a GK-kit. I just ordered a set. Thanks again for your help and info!!

                                       All the best,

My 07 Mojo joins the growing list of dodgy/broken switch flys (1 year of playing and the mag selector is fast on it's way out). Now to hunt out someone who will ship them to the UK. I'll post back when/if I find a company willing to supply (at a reasonable price) switches outside of the USA.

In the UK you can buy a suitable switch from Radiospares.  It's probably the same product, made by Electro in the US. There is also an option with a switch arm slightly longer than the original, making it easier to see and operate above the other controls.

So I have the two switches and a wiring diagram and laid out where the wires go. I am hesitant to do it without another source to go on. Does anyone have a close up view of the control cavity that I can check just to be sure? Maybe with some labeling and such?
