Default Swash linkage help. 450 pro DFC

Hey guys doing some setup work and learning today on my 450 pro DFC i got some new ALIGN servo to swash linkages(the ones that are turnbuckle style with edges on the middle of the link). I'm having such a difficult time getting them threaded. I've almost given up. I'm trying to thread the plastic ball link onto the linkage rod and they just are not threading. What am I doing wrong? Tried both ways both sides thinking one maybe reverse threaded for adjustments just by turning the rod .The linkage just seems to go into the plastic ball link at a bad angle and just chew it up. Any tips on this very basic assembly. I feel really dumb right now.

It's seems to be the really little stuff like this that always gets me.

*update , we'll it turns out I got the wrong linkages. This are actually for the DFC control linkage, anyway the problem is still the same. Screwing plastic ball links onto metal linkage rods. Tips and advice appreciated.

Hey, saw your post because i'm in the prossess of getting my old 450 T DFC back in the air again (the reason i'm lurking around the 450 forums) and thought this video from Ron Lund might help.
please enjoy and hope this helps...
