converting wheel-->tiller

Depends on the shape of the rudder: whether it is a barn door hinged type that requires lots of tiller pressure or if its a balanced spade rudder which is naturally balanced. Sometimes a skeg hung barn door type can be modified to become a balanced rudder. I agree with you on wanting a tiller.... but the rudder shape will be the determining factor.
