    Anybody know where I can source the receptacle connector for this connector? It's a Cessna landing light connector to the HID ballast. We're trying to make a clean connection for a new LED light rather than cutting wires. IMG_0551.jpg

    How fancy! My '76 C150 has two blade connectors for my landing/taxi light. :)

    Why would anyone replace an HID system with LED? Can I have the HID when you're done?

    I want to try the Sunspot 36 45s. I flew an aircraft on the field with LEDs and it had better light output than my HIDs.

    The parts numbers are in the Cessna wiring diagrams. This is typical of most of Cessna's electrical stuff. You need the service manual for such parts.
