On older harley starters we used tiny zip ties to hold em in place until the end cap was part way on and the cut the zip ties and pull them out with a needle nose then push the end cap on all the way----in can be a pain to do but it worked for me.
you could even try small rubber bands to hold the brushes in place.
I'am sure there are other ways to do it,its just the way I was shown to do it.

I have seen some that have a small hole in the brush holder. You push the brush into the spring, put a small wire through the hole (to hold the brush against the compressed spring.) Once the end cap is on the armature far enough you pull the wires out and push the end cap the rest of the way tight.
