They're not threads.  They're knurles.  The wires push on, and in doing so you hear/feel the little "clicks" as the wire is pushed on.  The same applies to the spark plugs.  If noting matches up, then you've bought the wrong parts.

Thank-you Master,  I never would have guessed they were knurles !!!
