This is a frequent inquiry on the forum. I just found a short, well done video showing how to do it on a C25.

Steve,

So far my rudder hardware appears okay. But nice video to ease tackling this potential job.

What the video doesn't warn you of is that the new Gudgeons are shaped like barrels with nylon inserts. The old ones are just a hole punched through flat stainless. The new gudgeons and pintles need to be in perfect virtical alignment or the pintles will bind and not seat when you go to hang the rudder. Similar to having two door hinges on different angles. It happened to me.
