Rudder shaft hardware for 1968 Pearson 35

I am restoring a P-35 , Hull #5, and I removed the rudder several years ago and now I can't find any hardware for the rudder shaft. Surely there must be seals, bearings, or something but I have not been able to find any info. Also, I need the post cap and arms that attach to the tiller. Does ANYONE have any information? It's time to re-install and I would VERY MUCH appreciated any help.
Thanks.

Stan take photos. It's wheel steering right? the steering quadrant may also sit on top of the lower rudder tube to support it. Rudders are very low tech installs.

Re: Rudder shaft hardware for 1968 Pearson 35

What are you missing?? There is a bearing and packing gland at the hull and shoe at the bottom of the keel. The upper bearing/packing gland looks like a a stock item. The bottom shoe is probably a custom casting.

I just converted my boat to tiller. Bought the hardware for the tiller head from Edson. Expensive but heavy duty. Looked for years for a used one but ran out of time so had to buy new when I made the conversion. Made up the cockpit fitting out of plastic bearing material.
