Good Day

Recently acquired a clock for the "Party Barge'. Problem is there is no lead to plug the power into, just a approx 7/16 hole in the back of the case. This isn't the light socket hole.

Does anyone have a picture of what this lead looks like? The SM indicates that it is a gray wire, but does not show any pics in the accessory section.

Thanks to all who respond.

It's been a while since I've had one apart, but I believe I remember.

In the middle of the back there should be a rubber grommet with a threaded stud sticking out of it. There should be a flat piece of metal about 1/4 inch wide with a hole in it that the stud goes through and a nut to hold it tight. The female plug from the wiring harness fits over the end of the flat piece.

The metal housing of the clock is the ground, so make sure the power connector isn't touching that in any way.
