I didn't photograph taking it apart but you do get the benefit of seeing how to put it all back together.
The first step is to install the four compression rods. Simply thread them into the base casting finger tight. To snug them up use two of the nuts tightened against each other on the top threads Put a wrench on the top nut and take about a half to quarter turn beyond finger tight. You don't need to over tighten them just snug them up a little.
