Bavaria 37 2008 autohelm

Hi all, 3 months ago i bought my retirement yacht Serenity. It doesn't hava an autohelm but is going to get one before we move aboard and sail off into the blue. It appears to be set up for a Lewmar rotary drive with a 13 tooth, 5/8 pitch sprocket on the steering shaft with a mount plate on the angle drive gearbox. Does anyone have the same model yacht with an autohelm? Looking at an ST6002 control head, SPX 10 with the 1/4 hp lewmar rotary drive.
Thanks in advance, Craggles

As it turned out i fitted the Raymarine type 1 rotary drive. Fabricated a stainless steel mounting bracket to lower the unit and used the existing mounting bolts. Fitted and Wired it all up and waiting for the 3/8 pitch steering sprocket and ss chain. Easy fix if you are in engineering and the system should be indestructable anyone with the same model 37 contact me for photos and engineering drawings.
