Does anyone have any experience installing the tailbeacon
in a MXT-7? My mechanic is saying that it won’t fit in the existing hole
because it’s not deep enough? I’m hoping someone has done an install and knows what’s going on.

Not a Maule but the same idea. Start with page 3 #97 and read through.

This seems to be a reoccurring theme. I think most get worried about the beacon touching the fabric. You have to push it in and turn, once it’s turned it will barely touch the fabric of at all. Just make sure the fabric is nice and warm when you install the beacon.

I put mine into an MX-7. It fit in the hole fine, but it goes it an a 45 degree angle and then rotates to line up and lock into position. On that rotation is when it hits the fabric inside and you'll see some paint cracking. Like Mog said, you'll be better served if you get it nice and warm before installation (something I didn't do) but once it's in the vertical position it fits just fine.
