Installing below deck autopilot on a First 310

Hi!!

I would like to install an under-deck autopilot on my Beneteau First 310 but I'm wondering how to fix a lever on the rudder shaft.
Does anyone have pictures of his/her installation?

Wouldn't the Autopilot ram come with an appropriate lever, and it's own prescribed attachment method? I'd imagine this is something that needs to be securely pinned - probably through the stock?
