Direct replacement rudder blade (aluminium) with 2 separate pickups on each side feeding 2 outlets. Even the highest pickup on the blade is positioned well below the hull for uniterrupted water flow.
Kit includes 2x perfect seal aluminium hose covers, 2x aluminium water outlets and 1.5 metres of Large diameter silicone water tubing.
All fittings and water tube is the largest avaialble as used in large scale gas powered boats for maximum water flow.
Brief installation instructions as follows-
Fasten new rudder blade onto existing mount using original bolts/nuts. Tools req – 2.5mm allen key, 7mm wrench, screwdriver.
Fasten existing steering arm onto new rudder blade using original bolts. No need to remove steering rod from original arm. Tools req – 2mm allen key
Enlarge original water inlet hole and drill new hole in place of your choosing. Drill size required 8.5mm.
Feed water tubing through hose covers and install them. 8.5mm hole will produce slightly lose fit so ensure to secure with a drop of glue or silicone sealant. You will need to cut the silicone tube into a slight point to feed through the covers.
Enlarge existing water outlet hole and drill a second hole in a place of your choosing. Drill bit size 8mm. Your radio reciever is mounted near this area so be careful when drilling.
Run your water lines then last of all fit the tubing to the ‘loop’ part of your esc water feed. You will have more than enough tubing left over to do this job, but as the tube is larger diameter than stock you can’t copy that length exactly or it will kink against the side of your boat. Cut it longer as per our pic.
