Hurth Tranny dipstick threads

Checking if anyone has the same experience I have been having for quite a long time: When I unscrew the dipstick to check the fluid level, and I am finished and want to put it back, somehow it will not thread right away. Today I have been playing with it to no avail. It looks as if it does not fall in place to thread in. I try inclining it a little one way or the other but it will not go. In the past I have had the problem but finally it does go in.
Does anyone has a special trick or a reason for this?
Thanks

My trick is to push firmly down with the plug square(not tilted).

Re: Hurth Tranny dipstick threads

Turn the fitting backwards till you feel the the lead of the threads engage and then screw it in. You should feel a distinct click when it engages.

Thanks to all, I'll try again, I always finally find the thread. Have own Alfin II for 25 years and check this often. It is just that this time has been especially hard.
Thanks again

Have look at both threads if you can just to check condition.
