Steering components

I rebuilt the steering system on my 1987 Hunter 37. There were two large nylon washers under the radial. Like 5 inches in diameter. They seemed to have a very sticky lube on them but I'm not sure. I had been given the advice to not lube. However I notice that if the rudder is pushed back and forth with some wave motion it creaks at the end of the motion. Anyone have an opinion as to whether there should have been additional or new lube added?

Question 2.

I'd like to replace the wheel autopilot with one directly on the drive. The instructions picture doesn't seem to refer to my set up. I have the radial and don't understand how you would attach the drive unit. They show a small link. Any help please.....
