Thanks all for the response.

How could a forget the many times I spent during the past five weeks
removing and installing my rudders, of course not using locknuts.

P.S. The rudder deflections (std. wing) are 1 15/16" where the rudder is
4" wide, 28 deg. 58 min. I had to cut a 1" hole in the bottom of one
wing, to keep the neopress fitting from getting hung up.
