First make sure the thread pitch is exactly the same on both transmissions.

If so then look for thread problems with the new shaft.  If you see them you 
could even touch up the threads with a small triangular file.  If you don't see 
anything with the new shaft then look at the threads inside of your flange.  
Maybe the new shaft is trying to go deeper into the threads or somehow the end 
of the shaft is shaped differently from the old shaft.
