Hi there - I recently purchased the 3-hole rudder gudgeon (SS18-06), however have just discovered that the cast iron pintle is slightly too wide a diameter (the boat is from 1971). Is this the correct pintle to use?
The cast pintles that I've seen from back in the 70's were also tapered and don't fit anything that's available now so you would have to replace the opposite side and possibly all the fittings to get them to line up correctly.
However that all said without a manufacturers name/part number, picture, measurements, class of boat I'm guessing at what could be on a near 50 year old boat of some sort
