1960's Crane Bathroom Faucet

I am trying to replace the entire stem on both of the hot and cold water...

1. Water is hooked up fine, if stems are off and water is turned on there is pressure
2. When I put both of the stems in and turn the water on the shut off valve I get a trickle of water if I turn the top threaded piece.
3. I have checked for interior rust, it appears fine. I am wondering if there is a special way to put in the stems...ie. if I am screwing them in too far...I tried adjusting this also, the so called length of putting them in.

any suggestions would be great...thank you!

Post a photo of the new stems and old stems side-by-side.

Stems screw in the whole way for OFF. I don't see how you could adjust this this.

What is the problem with the old stems?
