OIL FILTER WONT TIGHTEN

Oil filter wont tighten to gasket. Threads all look fine. Tried 2 different brands both same problem. Thought might be cross threaded and still not the problem.

Have you tried a fram PH3614 filter?Also those threads can be changed you will need a 10mm allen socket to change it.
