On further inspection, I think the problem is largely worn case tube threads. I'm not getting thread engagement until I hit the bottom threads, so it's not grabbing with the gasket installed.

So... The current tube is the 24-6000 (no visible splines). As far as I can tell, after I remove this, the 24-6020 is the new style replacement, has the same threads and should screw right in. Anyone know otherwise?

Also, there exists a small metallic case tube sealing gasket (29-06020), but it doesn't seem like it's used with the 24-6020? Most people mention using some Loctite on the threads to ensure water-resistance. Any thoughts on that?
