You're going to need some sort of gland fitting to seal around the shaft.. it's odd, though, that if the wheel was added later then the 'emergency tiller' connection should be the original setup still....

Also, depending on what's below decks you may need another upper rudder stock bearing at deck level.. pics of YOUR actual setup would be good!

btw paste the "IMG CODE" link in Photobucket and your pictures show up directly.
