Default Discus 2 rudder stiff help please

As delivered, the ship came with Schempp-Hirth standard brass bushing and brass washer which allows the self-locking nut to be tightened up completely and the rudder will still move freely. Not uncommon to find the brass washer installed upside-down or missing and replaced with a standard washer. In either case, tightening the nut will produce a stiff rudder.
