  • Remove the earth wire
  • Measure clearances ( rudder drop and jumping clearances )
  • Fix eye bolt to rudder stock and take load with the help of chain block at strong point provided
  • Remove the bolts of gand housing and remove gland packing.
  • Remove the locking ring

  • Remove the bottom half which is also in 2 pieces and attached to ahip structure via chocks
