Catalina 28 - outside diameter of stern tube

Does anyone out there know what the OD of the stern tube on my 1992 Catalina 28 should be? I have tried measuring it with calipers but it is partly covered with fiberglass and I get a an odd number - it appears to be between 1 5/8" and 1 3/4".
I am asking because I am considering the purchase of a PSS and the units from PYI come sized for a 1" shaft with either 1 1/2" to 1 5/8" or 1 3/4' to 1 7/8".
Cheers,
Bill

Wouldn't have a clue, given mine is a Catalina 27-but I've had great results contacting the Catalina Yachts customer service through their web site, on all things Catalina. They get back to me in a day, usually.
Cheers, back,
Don

sounds like you already have your answer it's 1.5 since it should stretch over that eighth inch.

I have a Catalina 28 but have no idea what a stern tube is or what you are trying to figure out.

However, i am working on my Autohelm 4000, bought a new belt to replace worn belt, all in hopes that it would fix the lever that engages the wheel. The lever is floppy and will not engage at the helm gear/wheel. Any ideas on this.
