/ Reassembling starter, brushes #1

I was installing a new drive on the starter for my Ford 3000 last night and accidently let the rotor pull out from the brushes. It was late so I didn't spend much time on it yet, but was having trouble figuring out how to hold the brushes out to get the rotor back in position. I tried removing the springs, and got one back together, but I don't think that's going to work for all four. Anyone know of any tricks? I didn't notice any holes to stick a pin through. I might be able to find something to hold the springs back, but I don't know what it would be, or how that would work just yet. Figured I'd ask before diving back into it tonight.
