well the smaller blade sits on plastic piece that is coming out of the clipper, having the inside of blade towards you. then larger blade ,the inside of that faces smaller blade,and align them to where you can see smaller teeth thru larger ones put screw back in and tighten. then oil them.
I have the same model. Actually, they're quite old. If you don't have replacement blades already, you can find them at Sally Beauty Supply ( sallybeauty.com for a location near you ) for about $20 for this model. The replacement blade may not be available online, but my local store has it available for purchase. You may find it available at your local beauty supply.
Remove the two screws that hold the 2-piece blades in place. Remove the blades and take note of how they are situated together. Both have flat sides that slide together where the teeth meet. Your replacement blades should be arranged in the same manner when you put them back on the trimmer. First place the smaller blade onto the clip. This is best done by aligning one of the diamond shaped hole with one of the flat prongs, then pushing the balde towards the side to help snap the other prong into the other diamond shaped hole. Once this is securely in place put the larger blade on so that the smooth surfaces touch each other and the holes for the screws are lined up. Replace the screws securely but do not tighten it. Do the same with the second screw. You should just barely be able to slide the larger blade around with some effort. You will need to do this to properly align the blades together. The teeth of both blades should never meet at the tip. The smaller blade should be about 1/16 - 1/8 of an inch away from the tip of the larger blade and should be evenly spaced all the way across the width of the blade. If you have this set properly, go ahead and tighten one of the screws. Check the spacing of the blades again to ensure they have not moved. If they have, you just need to slightly loosen the one tight screw and re-adjust. Tighten the screw back down. If all is aligned propperly, you should be able to tighten the second screw without any problems. Don't forget to lubricate the blades with the proper oil. Check you local beauty supply store if you need oil. That's it. They are now ready to trim.

Your clipper moves at just one speed. There is no way to 'speed it up' if it is working correctly.

The smaller blade lays on top of the larger blade. align two blades together. Hold the blade compartment in your hand upward with smaller blade on top of the larger blade.

For Remington clippers, the smaller blade has a groove which matches a beveled edge on the trimmer body. Line it up, align the larger blade to its screw holes, insert and fasten screws until tight, and you're good to go. Oh yeah, and try to center the small blade.
