Thread: Installation of Aux Power Plug

    Installation of Aux Power Plug

    I finally found a original Beech "Aerostart' Aux Power outlet and want to
    install on my Sundowner. I looked at the drawings in the Parts Manual and
    it looks like it mounts directly to the skin of the aircraft. Is this
    correct or do you have a "doubbler" of some sort? The drawings in the Parts
    Manual is nt very clear on this.

    Installation of Aux Power Plug

    The parts manual does not show any doubler between the socket flange and the
    skin. In addition to that evidence, the screw size is an AN525-10R7. That
    is a structural truss-head size 3 (10-32 threads) Phillips-head screw, with
    a grip length of only 1/16" (.0625" long). That strongly implies that there
    is no doubler, or else the grip portion of the screw would not pass through
    the flange area of the socket as it should. The screw threads would ride
    within the flange holes, potentially causing chafing and the formation of
    abrasion corrosion.

    Congratulations on finding one of these for your plane!
