I have been trying to fit a o-like module in to a small host, but have been unsuccessful due to the length of the module. I cut the "extra" tubing off the front but it's still to long. I was wondering if it is possible to remove the driver from the module and replace it with a smaller one, like a flexdrive. I have disassembled a olike module before and it appears that it would be possible except that the diode is soldered to the driver in 3 places. What is the third pin for and it is necessary for the diode to operate? There is also the issue of what current the diode needs to be driven at.
