411 Rudder Packing

Dear All

My boat is presently out of the water for annual maintenance and I wish to repack the rudder stuffing box (preventative rather than a problem). Does anyone have a detailed drawing of how the stuffing box is configured. What is inside the top round threaded nut.

It would appear as if I may have to take of the quadrant to be able to undo the top threaded nut with the "C" spanner. Is this correct?

Does anyone have the dimensions and specification of the packing.

Any advise would be welcome.

Thank you
