KP problem that makes no sense

Here's the situation. KP plunger....I've taken it completely apart. The threaded head section will thread into the KP no problem on it's own. When I put the whole assembly back together tight, it will only thread in about 3 turns then get's tight.

NOW....if I loosen the threaded head section even the tiniest of turns from the rod then try to screw it into the whole assembly it screws right in.

Why? It makes no logical sense to me and I've tried a billion different ideas.

I can't leave it partially unthreaded or the rod will complete fall off at some point. So what do I do?

Have you tried a single washer at thread head section? Is the plunger rod bent? Thread head is tapped on an angle to connect plunger rod?

Oddly enough I was just going to post....I put a washer between the rod and the threaded head and all of a sudden it works. Really weird.

Ok, cool. I can't explain it, but I have done that spacer thing on a few KP's.

the only thing I can think of is that the rod gets off center on the last few threads(I can't remember because I don't have one, does the rod on a KP have a donut half way down or just the cup at the end?). Using a washer may be a pretty solid solution

Just an update, should someone look back at this thread in the future.....a flat regular washer wouldn't work. Once you tighten it up, the rod assembly still wouldn't thread. To get it to work I used one of the cut off-set washers..like a locking washer, but without the barbs. Works perfectly.

Take the plunger end off and chuck it up in a lathe or a drill, turn it slowly and check for wobble at the threaded plug. The threaded area of the rod may be slightly bent, leaving the rod loose allows it to flex instead of binding.
