    remove all studs and then use a thread chaser to clean the threads then try again. also did you apply the moly lube or 30 weight oil?

    Thats your problem, you need a thread chaser to clean the threads. Clean the threads with a thread chaser and then re try. It should say on the instructions what size thread chaser to use.

    Also the instructions say hand tighten and then give it a 1/4 turn with a allen wrench.
