I have never had one go back together easily. The bars hold the bracket in a cylinder shape. When you have them out the you have to realign things to get it back together. Plus add in 50+ years of use/abuse so you have a fun time.
Here is how I have been doing them for years. Install all the tooth bars into the back spider reel. Then loosen the front spider reel spindle mounting bolts. The ones that hold the whole bracket to the bracket frame. The trouble is usually the basket frame is sprung a little bit so the reels are not parallel any more. With the mounting bolts loose then install the tooth bars into the front spider reel.(Put the stub shafts in the spider first then put the washers, spacers, bearing and bar on then the nut. If you try to just get them in far enough to get the snap ring on then they usually will not go together) Only have the nuts on a few threads on each one until you get them all in the spider. Then tighten them up. Then tighten the spindle mounting bolts. You may have to install all four at the same time to get them in the frame. You can usually get them in by yourself with the mount loose.
