I posted a few days ago about how I had to order a new clamp ring knob assembly for my filter. I went to install it today, and the instructions state that the gap should be no larger than 1/16". At first it tightened easily, but then it started squeaking really badly. I'm also getting resistance as I try to turn it with the socket wrench. I still have a bit to go, and I'm afraid that I will damage the filter or bolt. Am I doing something wrong? Is it normal for the bolt to make noise when it is being tightened? From what I can see, everything is seated property. I appreciate any suggestions.
Here is a picture of the filter:
