I would recheck the part number for the armature to ensure they have the same number and diameter of teeth. once you install the bearings this part should easily slide into the diaphragm and there is no alignment of the gears necessary. Let me know if I can be of more assistance.

How do I get to the reduction gear in the aluminum housing?

generally all you need to do it "tap" the housing with a dead blow hammer and the armature will JUMP out of the diaphragm.. make sure there are no screws locking the bearing to the housing if not try the above.

Motor replacement for Bosch Mitre saw

Most often the entire motor doesn't go bad. It would be a componen't like armature, field, brushes, Switch. I very seldomly see a whole motor go bad. look for a single problem. The saw is not junk it is very repairable with some testing of parts.

Making a loud noise, motor turns slowly.

Sounds like you have a burnt up motor. When a motor overheats the armature and field will swell. This causes them to rub together which can cause more heat which in turn can cause the whole motor to seize. The problem with repairing a motor like this is that everything that the field and armature have come into contact with needs to be replaced. For example, bearings, boots, brushes and holders, wiring, and especially the housing. When you take a burnt up field out of a housing it may look fine, but the stresses cause by the expanded field will not allow the new field to sit in there correctly which will cause more problems down the line.

There could possibly be other problems, such as a broken commutator bar ( which could make a lot of noise).

The easiest way to find out if you have a burnt up motor is to flip the table saw over and remove the 4 screws that hold the motor in. Make sure your brushes are removed first. After you have the 4 screws out, try to remove the housing. If it gets stuck you know you have a swollen armature. If it doesn't you can inspect the comm bars for damage. Good luck

Bosch table saw model 4000

It sounds like the pinion on the armature and or gear are stripped. The only way to find out is to tilt the blade and remove the motor housing from the diaphragm and check it. If replacing the armature I would recommend also replacing the bearings and brushes as preventative
