Its the age old story of a seller on e bay seller that 'doesnt know anything about pipes' so the stem and bowl dont go together. Part of the push and thread was missing so I had to make a new bush.

However the thread in the bowl was a bit stripped, I used the well documented technique of heating the threaded part and expanding it slightly with an oversize drill bit and now it screws in nice and tight. ( Sorry for all the unintentional sexual innuendo)
