Ok here is the deal. The nipples are not threaded enough or a dull die was used. I meant put the locknuts on the same side. First one on as far as you can get it on, then through can, then 2nd lock nut. So from outside you have threads, center of nipple, threads, locknut, can, locknut. Guarantee it will work.
This is how I advised LT72884 how to do it.
