Nikon FE troubles

Hello everyone,
I'm here because I made something stupid with my FE and I'm stuck.
First I had a shutter problem, only with highest shutter speeds, and then I decided to search for electrical issues.
I also wanted to clean my trusty old camera by the same occasion.
So I removed the speed knob, the winding lever, the rewind crank, the asa dial, the top cover and, what I shouldn't have done, the functional resistance element (FRE).
As a result, I disengaged the gear linked by a kind of belt to the aperture coupling piece.
I understand what I've done wrong and I understand what should be done, but of course I don't know how.
I also understand I don't know how I will manage to recalibrate the asa setting ring and the exposure meter.
As I don't want to go further and do more harm, I'm here.
Please help !
Thanks in advance.
