New reply from Jeremy Rowley

<p>I'm intrigued.  How does one know whether the rudder bearing needs replacing? What is the problem you are trying solve by replacing it? </p>

Rudder Bearings

<p>At some point this year I’m going to replace the rudder bearings on the 405, probably when she’s out for anti fouling. Does anyone have a drawing of the assembly? I’ve seen places selling the components but nothing showing where the spacers go, how the seal fits or what gaps need to be left. A drawing would be really helpful. <br /><br /></p>
<p>Linked to that, has anyone here done the Jefa roller bearing conversion and was it worth it? I imagine it may suffer with grit and sand in the lower one especially…</p>
