Another Partner Stove Question

I finally broke out my Partner Stove repair kit to replace a jet (was getting low flame from one burner) and decided to continue with examining the needle valve and o-ring.
Both were fine so just added a bit of vaseline to the o-ring as suggested by PS and proceeded to re-assemble.
That's where I got stuck - for the life of me I can't get the stop nut to catch a thread.
Is there any particular technique you've found that works?
I just keep spinning the nut with the bet 7/8" wrench with no luck whether I keep the needle valve all the way or partly in.
Thanks for any help - I need to use this stove on the Rogue in a couple weeks.

A picture or two might help. Maybe blow everything out with an air hose. Thread damage is always a possibility. Are you holding your tongue out correctly? Has the O ring expanded maybe? Is the size different from a new one? Sometimes an O ring will get a slice in it you can't see but will hang it up on installation. Can you thread it together without the O ring on it? Just some thoughts

Thanks for the suggestions.
Ultimately there was no way that nut would catch a thread so I opted to just install a new needle valve assembly (from the two spares I had in the kit).
The advantage of doing that is the stop nut can be threaded on and tightened before the knob is attached to the shaft - so easy to access.
Once assembled the knob can be pressed on (after softening in hot water).
While putting the stuff away, went ahead and disassembled the original part by softening in hot water then using a pry bar to get the knob off.
Knowing this now, a field repair should be easy peazy. Would not have been the case without having gone through this at home.

Thanks again!
