Good stuff. I'm planning on working on my rudder today. I'm not happy with the steering ('93 ProStar) even after greasing everything. But I don't think the rudder box took any grease, so I'm guessing its old and nasty in there. I plan to disconnect the tiller arm first and then rotate the rudder by hand to feel how it is rotating. Then after re-assembly and re-greasing, I'm hoping that it moves easier and will solve my issues.
Did any of you guys take note of the before and after "feel" of the rudder rotation without the tiller arm connected?
