Rudder port Thanks to OJ props

Just want to give a big thank-you to OJ props for rebuilding my Rudder Port. Saved me $1100 over the local MasterCraft dealership who indicated I need a new rudder and port.
Anyway Thanks to Eric and his crew at OJ Props. Below is the before and after.

I have one of those in my future as well. Did you pull it and install? How was the whole process?

I did do it myself, dropping the port was a little difficult. Lots of heat on port is the trick. There are some good threads on here about doing it.
One thing that was not noted in the threads is the tiller is through bolted.
I removed the nuts thinking they would easily come out. They did after I put a wrench to them.

I dropped the rudder out this spring poking around, decided to run it for another season but Im ready for the surgery. Also thinking about strut bearings.

The bolt that goes on the tiller / rudder port: that bolt hole is fully threaded so once you take the locking nut off, you still need to wrench the bolt outward to remove it.

Lots to read too. It was noted...
