New Anti Siphon Value Leaking

I just installed 3 new irritrol anti siphon values and they are leaking where the male fitting threads into the value. I did not use any teflon tape or glue the threads. It was hard to get the fitting tight as it seemed to stick the further it is threaded. Any hints would be appreciated.

Take it all apart and use teflon tape when you reassemble it. It is not an optional item.
