My experience is that altering the rudder position within the stock does not affect the lee / weather helm, it just alters the weight of the helm by producing a semi balanced rudder blade (by positioning some of the rudder area ahead of the pivot).

My TS240 has slight lee helm in light conditions which changes to weather helm as the wind increases. I suggest that you check your rigging tension and mast rake. We could all compare and see if there is a common setting that suits the TS240?
