The feeds used on the Pac/Laird 2" dishes is 8.5" long from flange to the
bottom of the feed. 
The new wide band feeds are a flat looking disk 5.75" in diameter. 

http://store.wisp-router.com/customkititems.asp?kc=DA5W%2D29&eq=#
Shows a picture of the old "narrow band" feed it's about 2" in diameter. 

You can see a picture of the wide band feed at
http://store.wisp-router.com/customkititems.asp?kc=DA5W%2D32&eq=

It looks just the same on the 2ft dish even if I linked to the 3ft. 

If you need a wide band 5Ghz feed for the 2ft dish then this
http://store.wisp-router.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=DA5W%2D29%2DFEED&eq=&Tp=
Should work assuming the length of the arm is correct. 
(not that the picture is the old style narrow band but the item we have in
stock is actually the wideband, guess I need to make sure we get the picture
updated for this item). 

On the wideband if the N-female connector is up/down then you are set for
vertical and if the connector is to either side your set for horizontal. 
On the old style feed the connector is straight back and there should be
markings on the base if this marking is up/down your in vertical, side
either side it's horizontal. I want to recall it's just a notch or circular
depression (do not have any of those feed left so can not verify).

I suppose the may not be pacwireless as I have determined they are 2.4
by hooking the up to a CM9 and when ap is in 5.8 I see nothing and when
in 2.4 I can see. Now I just need to find 5.8 feedhorns to fit this
dish.

Assuming they're Pac (not sure how that was determined)

You know they are 2.4 or 5Ghz

Eje just said: If these are Pacific Wireless dishes then they are 5GHz
assuming these are
solid dishes since Pac never produced a 2.4GHz feedhorn for their solid
dishes at least during the 6+ years we been one of their distributors.

Obviously it's 5GHz!

Polarity is normally done with an arrow sticker on the base of the
feedhorn.  Of course if it's been out in the weather it's long gone.
