Tiller Pilot Installation

Does anyone know of a source for Simrad Tiller Pilot TP32 installation hardware. I'm talking about the brackets for the tiller and the cantilever bracket for the unit itself. I searched several web sites, sent emails to suppliers and Simrad, all to no avail.
Thanks,
John

I bought a new tp32 from Defender Marine last year during a sale, it is my next project to mount on my Pearson 10M (about 33 feet with 12,000 displacement). I suspect that calling Defender will get you the correct number to call for parts, etc. For some reason, I think the parts supply is in Tulsa, Ok.

I have a new TP32 Simrad tiller pilot, and was going to install on my Pearson 10M, which is 32.8 feet, but 12,400 lbs design displacement. When I called Simrad today, they were elusive about whether I should install, because the tp32 says "boats to 40 feet" but then says 13,000 displacement. Does anyone have experience on this? I didn't think my boat was relatively heavy, and what alternative is there for tiller autopilots?

There are other 'limits' than just displacements and boat length.
It all comes down to steering forces put down on the unit.
Often a keel-hung rudder has higher force than a balanced 'spade' free hanging rudder.
The length of your tiller, but the longer the tiller, the less 'stroke' you get from the unit.
Sail trimming may even play an important role as well as wave and weather conditions you plan to sail in.
If you already have it, why not install it?
Just be sure you 'learn its limits and behavior under controlled circumstances before you really puts it on hard tests.
