[TowerTalk] LMR600 termination

I have purchased Times Microwave LMR600 coax for use on some of my longer 
antenna runs but, for the life of me, I cannot make a good termination.

I have:

Times Microwave LMR600 coax
ST600C coax prep tool
DBT01 deburring tool
TC600UMC clamp type connectors

The vendor referred me to the Times Microwave home page for instructions and 
I found "Soldered pin termination of connector 3190-213 on cable MI-54003" 
which I guess is what I've got (?)

I prep the coax (looks good), chamfer the center conductor (also looks good) 
then assemble the connector with all the bits and pieces as they came out of 
the shipped connector and tighten it down with two wrenches, but every time 
I can just pull the connector off the coax (the center pin is all that 
remains). I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Any ideas or can you point me towards something that will help me?

Thanks in advance.
