Rudder Port Locking Nut -- Morgan 34

Hi Folks,

I'm missing the lock nut to my rudder port packing box (finally found that persistent leak) and am having trouble sourcing a replacement. Don't have the rudder port O.D., but the packing nut I.D. is 1.68" and 16 t.p.i.

I've called Buck Algonquin and their two referrals without luck. Anyone have any suggestions on whom to call, or know whom Charlie was sourcing from back then?

As always, thanks for any help.

Have you met Richard Shearly? Another M34 owner in MA.
I'm sure he is a member of the Morgan owners group - wherever that is.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did find and connect with Richard. Looks like he's done a lot of work on his M-34 and should be a good source and sounding board for the projects I have planned.
