It's hard to say without more information. The 39-286 is meant for a 3/8" bore. What size is yours?
A quick learner says:
its 3/8" by my measures ..when i put it on,the end goes too far down and wont screw on

It's possible your old bore has worn down over the years. Try using a piece of scotch tape or adhesive, that may help keep the handle on. Otherwise, it may be time for a new operator.

Ok. Thank you so much
