So I bought this off of Ebay,
https://www.ebay.com/itm/152139721746?u ... noapp=true
and decided the sleekest way to get a proper length cable on there was to desolder the one that came with it, and solder onto a new one. Job done, or so I thought... Apparanetly neodymium magnets don’t like all that heat, so mine got demagnetized. As far as I can understand, there is no simple way of remagnetizing it.
So, I’m looking for a new magnet, and there are heaps out there, godd stuff! But mine measures 24x4x3mm and so far I haven’t found an exact match.
So now I’m wondering what dimensions I might get away with deviating a little from:
- the 24mm measurement runs the length of the cables travel/stroke. I wouldn’t dare going shorter, but maybe 25mm could work? that might help a whole lot!
- the 4mm is the one that fills the slot it sits in. So obviously I cannot go larger, but would it hurt to go slightly (say 1mm) smaller, If I find no other way?
- the 3mm dimension is the build height, up against the pick-up/sensor, and I won’be changing that.
Then a final question: how much does the force of the magnet have to say? Because I have no way of knowing the now long gone force of the demagnetized magnet... I tried reaching out to the seller, and he has never even opened up one of these throttles, and he can’t source magnets separately...
One way of solving this whole thing would of course be to buy a whole new throttle, and removing the magnet before doing the whole cable change over again...
Thanks for any advice
