[TowerTalk] 2-Piece N Connector Question

I am attempting to install the 2-piece silver-plated N connectors on
9913-F (flexible) coaxial cable. This is my first experience with
either of these particular items. I have installed lots of the older,
multi-piece N connectors on 9913 cable.
Does anyone know of any particular installation techniques for these
connectors? After I tin the cable braid (as per instructions), and try
to screw on the inner connector body, the *&^!@! braid gets pushed
away from the body into the PVC jacket leaving only the inner polyethlyne
jacket and fragments of aluminum foil to solder to. I spent two hours
last night trying to make this system work! Not!
I may have to go back to the old style N connector. But it does not
provide near the pull-out resistance as does the newer style.
