Re: tiller arm on rudder shaft

The square section is usually for an emergengy tiller,in case your cable steering breaks. Adding a tiller arm just above the quadrant,in your case,would appear to leave sufficient square to mount an emergency tiller.
A link to previous thread on a/p mountings may help you. / Len

Re: tiller arm on rudder shaft

As Deblen says the square at top of the rudder is normally used for emergency steering.

I got my quadrant 2nd hand (probably off a workboat) but you can see in the attached photo that it has a tiller arm bolted to the quadrant.
