Hello Lonnie. All is not lost! The solution to your problem is to insert the rotor into the rear housing first, while you have room to work with the brushes. Then, slide the stator down over the rotor, and finally the front cover on the motor.
Step-by-step, this would be a possible procedure...
First, debur the shaft so it doesn't damage the front bearing as it's withdrawn.
Slide the front housing off the stator and set the front housing aside.
Set the rear housing of the motor in a vise, with the jaws padded so that you don't damage it. You want the open side up, so that gravity will hold the rotor down in the bearing once it's installed.
Place the rotor through the stator, then lift the stator up to gain access to the brush gear. From this perspective, you should be able to manipulate the brushes with pick tools, and slide the rotor all the way down into the bearing; so that the brushes are on the commutator.
Next, press the stator into position into the rear housing. Finally, the front housing will slide over the shaft, and be pressed over the stator.
This should work on that little motor. Hope it helps!
