thanks to everyone for the replies. i had conpletely forgotten about a thread file. i went and picked one up yesterday after work and spent about 10 minutes with it on the lockring threads. after that the phil lockring threaded all the way on by hand with a few minor tight spots. i got the bike together but only had time to ride it up and down the street a few times, after some adjusting it should be a fine fit and great ride.
