Here are a couple photos of the modifications I needed to make to fit the new stemhead. I notched out both the top and bottom of the aluminum using a Dremel tool. It took some persuasion to get the old stemhead out but repeated strikes with a wood block finally knocked it out. The new stemhead is thicker than the original so it was also necessary to ease the corners of the deck and bow using a bastard file. After a couple sharp blows the new stemhead fell into place.

Exactly like mine went down... thanks!

My replacement fitting wasn't as direct replacement as I'd have liked but the folks at Garhauer sent me a spacer and I hope to finish the job on my next trip.
