What size did you install?

I used a Beckson deck plate model DP40-B and with a flexible 18" extension on the grease gun, you can lube the rudder assembly without removing the floor panels. You'll see that I offset it slightly. Just remove the two screws on the left side to free it up for panel removal. It lines up exactly with the baffle/access hole through the fuel tank.

Now I like that! I'll have to add that to my list of upgrades.....Thanks :)

Brings up a quick question - how often should you lube the rudder assembly?
