Can't get my valve back in...

So a while back I took my pgp apart and have been having issues getting it back in the gun. It's a non cart. Valve and I know I'm putting it together right but the problem I'm running into is that the valve nut/screw (part that has square hole in middle) is not wanting to catch the threads and just spins. I've tried multiple times with no luck. I've even tried with no internals in the gun to screw in that piece and it's still not going. All the threads look ok and have no signs of stripping. So any advice? Should I get a tap and die and just chase the threads?

Thanks,

Try inserting nut and turn slowly counterclock wise with medium pressure until you hear or feel nut click down on the threads. Now turn clockwise and it should thread in...

Yup even with no internals I can't get it to go. And I always find my self turning a screw counter clockwise till it clicks then screwing it in. But even that isn't doing the trick. It's not catching anything but all the threads are fine.

Are you pushing hard enough to compress the valve spring? The valve spring will keep the nut form engaging the threads if you don't keep constant pressure on it while screwing it in.

Yes, but even with no internals in the gun with no spring tension or anything it still won't go.

I've had that happen to my kp. I ended up putting a stainless nut from palmers in it. The threads on the brass nut was screwed and wouldn't start no matter what I tried.

Stainless nut eh? Going to have to look into that . And since I was out of ideas I tried flipping it around multiple times.
