Bristol 24 Corsair rudder removal

Now facing the same problem because the stuffing box hose is shot and must be replaced.

My question is whether it is necessary to remove the shoe at the bottom of the keep in order to drop out the rudder, or whether there is enough play with the top bearing removed and the stuffing box hose loose to swing the rudder past the shoe.

Anybody here with experience in this?
