Actually, the barbs on the CT (and I guess the Orracle) switches
are about 1/8" farther back than on the stock switch. I tried the shaft from an STO switch and couldn't getthe pneumatics to cycle at all. Then again...maybe I could just snip off 1/8" from the end that connects to the timing rod. That might just work.

This was debated ad naseum over at the Tinkers Guild years ago. It really depends what you consider to be a "way". If you see the component as a swtich (which, in reality is what it is - it redirects or switches the flow of a gas from one path to another), then it's technically a 2-way. The gas flows from the LPR to the switch and the switch directs it to either
the front or
the back of the ram. 2 possible paths of gas flow, hence 2-way switch.
