Before placing your order, there are several measurements you need to take/confirm.
Measure the exact diameter of your rudder stock (.000"). Locate this measurement in the table below.
Next, note the flange height of your part (Measurement E) in the table. Verify there is enough room between the rudder shelf and the deck / miscellaneous construction above to install the unit (generally, 1 1/2 times the overall height of the unit (Measurement B).
Then, using the barrel diameter measurement in Column C, confirm there is sufficient clear space on the shelf around the rudder stock to locate the URB-LP.
Finally, check the position and mounted height of other steering components to determine if any adjustment will be necessary once the URB-LP is in place.
