Don't believe there was a link or instructions to use the new rudder with the old lines.

I also wanted the original lines with the rudder upgrade. Thankfully the lines were long enough.
Remove the old rudder without cutting any lines.
Mount the new rudder.
Remove and install the lines one at a time.
The port and starboard lines were easy to unscrew and then attach to the new rudder.
The up/down lines are under tension. I pulled them out as far as I could where they exit the hull and clamped them with vice grips while I routed and tied each line to the new rudder.
The down did get away but it was easy to reroute through the tube.
Little more time than the proscribed installation but it keeps your back hatch clear.
