Thanks Mike,

Sounds like I am on the same page as you. I'm anxious to find the problem and get it operating properly.

Aaron,

Removing the seat pan is a drag but I do it every year for the condition inspection.

You may find there is minor corrosion or dried up grease that is easy to clean up and lightly lube again. Hope that is all it is. The Nimbus is a neat older sailplane.

Default Nimbus 2B flaps/trim

After a thorough inspection of the flaps/trim issue, I found that the trim screw was able to bottom out on the flap actuation rod. A simple thin brass washer provided just the right amount separation without losing the trim detents and their ability to hold the trim in place while moving the flap handle through all available settings. Thanks all for the suggestions and wonderful support! STAY SAFE!
