    Default need to replace rudder packing gland seal on '92 TS6mcomp

    Good morning,
    I have a 92 comp with a 351 PCM.
    Does anybody have part diagram on how the rudder assembly comes apart?
    I got the cotter pin out and the nut off the threaded rod but I can't figure out how the get the threaded rod out of the arm.
    It looks like the rudder post is notched where the threaded rod goes thru/into the arm, but I'm not sure.
    There is also a key on the rudder post above packing gland nut.

    I've got 2 marine service shops here in Lake County Illinois and both can't say how long it will take to repack seal,
    they charge from $139 to $169/hour for service work and one guy said it might take 5 hours but he didn't know.
    I'm not willing to roll the dice on $750 or more if I can do it myself.

    I think there is enough room to do the job WITHOUT removing the gas tank?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks
    Hugh

    Jetlink,
    I tried to send 3 PM's and it appears they did not send/go.
    I know less about PM's than packing seals
    can I put my email and phone number in this thread?
    thanks
    Hugh
