Hi Guys -

Doing a little pre-season maintenance and remember last fall that I had a lot more rudder slop than I cared for. I've removed as much play as I can from the various linkage points, but I have one point of slop that I'm still deciding the best course of action to resolve. I have an older 2010 C2 and the issue is between the pintles and the castings/gudgeons (pics below).

Here are the choices that came up with. Looking for your advice.

Option 1: Utilize some form of epoxy or JB Weld, etc. to make hole in the castings smaller and drill it out to proper diameter.
Option 2: Weld in some Aluminum and drill it out.
Option 3: Oversize drill it and then sleeve it (praying I get the right ID for a tight fit)

Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance!
