This may be too late in coming, but I made a little video for you
showing an 8864 being taken apart and put together. It's here:
The crux of the matter regarding aligning the gears is a link at the
bottom of that page to a short segment. Basically the method I used
here is to rotate the forward wheel set back and drop in the
intermediate gear so it causes that wheel set to rotate forward,
towards the position I really want it, allowing the intermediate gear
to seat in the process. I barely got it right on the video but I got
lucky and things fell into place. There are probably at least as
many different techniques as I have thumbs.
I hope the visual aid may be of some use.
As Dan perfectly put it, it's a matter patience and trial and error.
