Re: Mirage 27 (Perry design) - rudder repair

I did end up Removing the rudder. Here are some pics for anyone else trying to do it

You Should see
5 - the Quadrant looking aft from the starboard locker
4 - a closer view of the quadrant
2+3 - Two pictures showing both sizes for reference
1 - The emergency steering bracket that has to be removed (wait until the rudder is supported from underneath as this is the only thing holding the rudder up after the quadrant is removed.

I had to remove all the bolts on the quadrant to get the bolt that goes through the shaft out. It may be possible to only loosen them rather than remove them entirely.
