Ahhh, got any more info as to what the actual problem is? They should all slot together pretty easily, you just need to make sure the little clip things inbetween them are lined up right.

Make sure the ends of the shafts are not burred a bit. You may need to tidy the edges up a bit with a file.
Good luck. :D

theres no visable signs of the ends burring,, its like the ends have a larger diameter than between the ends
