To determine the part number for your installation, measure the exact diameter of your rudder stock (.000") and the diameter and thread size of the rudder port. Match these three measurements to a line in the chart below. Next, confirm that there is sufficient space to accommodate both the assembly's diameter (Column B in the table) and height (Column C in the table on the Imperial and Metric pages).
If you are unable to match your installation measurements with those in Column A and C in the chart on the Imperial size page, simply call Tides Marine and we will machine a Type J to your specifications.
