First contact the seller with the problem. You might need to return it and get a refund (if it was sold as "in working" condition".

ok. thanks

The lens has not been assembled properly, which is why it separated. To get it back together, with a properly working distance scale and proper focus to infinity, will require more disassembly.

I am confused on this as after messing it I started seeing youtube for help and found a clip where this person unscrewed Helios lens just by twisting it.
