Rudder bushing worn out (F-24 Mk1)

I realize it's a bit of a long shot.

On my F-24 (Mk1) rudder bushing is pretty worn out - I get almost 1/4" if rudder "play" which makes steering feel sloppy and more so - interferes with tiller pilot operation.

Are there any F-25 Mk1 owners here that dealt with this? In particular - can the top "cap" on rudder shaft be taken off? What's the procedure for that?
