Default Ikarus Bleriot III gearbox problem

Does anyone have experience with the gearbox used on Ikarus Bleriot III as in this picture http://www.steveshangar.com/Bleriot%20III/Bleriot.jpg?
I have run this setup recently, and something went wrong with the gearbox that stopped the motor and caused it to overheat. The prop bolt also ate a bit of the prop in the center. I took the gearbox apart, and don't seem to understand how it's supposed to be put back.. the prop either tightens the bolt or unscrews it as it spins, i'm probably missing something here? It worked for a while.
Thanks.
