Replacing Razorweld 45 consumables

Apologies in advance for asking what I’ll assume is an easy question. Today I decided to replace the electrode and tip of my razonweld45. I removed the nozzle and burnt out pieces and proceed to replace with new. However for the life of me I can’t get the unit back together can anyone kindly point out the obvious step I’m missing. The torch end wants to retract less than 0.125" and no matter what I attempt I can’t join the pieces together.
