Autohelm for P36-2 1985

Hello all!
I've just bought a P36-2 and am planning various things for winter fit out. One of which is a new autohelm - nothing was fitted before and I will be making some long distance short handed trips as soon as possible
So, I have decided on the new Raymarin Evolution (Type 1 linear drive) and am wondering whether to get a dedicated rudder post attachment or whether to fix the drive straight to the steering quadrant/disc.
Also, I'm undecided as to where exactly to place the drive mounting, since I'm going to need to glass something in, I'd like to ask if anyone else has a Type 1 drive on their Pearson 36-2? Pictures would be awesome...
Chris
