If you turned the TR "a few times" and it's getting hard to turn, stop immediately. Go to the Hardware/Setup/Repair forum and read the sticky on setups. The only reason a TR should turn a few times is if it is totally slacked to begin with, which might have been the case.
Edit: It may also have a noisy tuner. Common on lower-end basses.
