How do the instructions not answer your question???
Like Leuky already said, it's perfectly normal for some threads to be showing. That's precisely what allows the cartridge & spindle to be adjustable from side-to-side.
Assuming you bought a BB having the correct spindle length & type for your crankset, just center the cartridge/cups in your BB shell and your crank arm clearance should be equal on both sides.
