    Default Tail beacon advice wanted

    Howdy,

    John N5892Z PA22-108 here. I am looking at the parts needed to put a tail anti-collision light on my
    existing threaded tail post. Looking inside the post it looks like there is a female plug about an inch down with holes for two pins in a half moon kind of configuration. Anyone familiar with these and what type of connector I need?

    Whelen recommended a 7105500 self contained light. I have a Whitaker mount from the previous owner but someone removed the anti collision light in the past because it would not fit in their hanger! I have a Grimes rotating beacon and it works but it is unclear what bracket I would need to make it fit on the post and the Whitaker mount. I did look at the Piper drawings but they do not appear to be for either the "stuff" that I have or the stuff that I may have to buy. I tried Whelen technical support and they disavowed any knowledge of mounting hardware for my bird.

    Any help and advice is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    John (please be gentle, first post......)
