Takumar 200mm F3.5 repair

Hello !

So, i recently acquired a takumar 200mm F3.5 preset lens on ebay.

It was quiet cheap and sold "as is". BUT, i can't get infinity focus and the photos looks very soft wide open.
I guess the lens has been reassembled wrong. Problem is, i can't find anywhere how to disassmble this lens.

I don't think the only 2 screws i found will help me much for the moment(on the photo).
There's also a place for a lens spanner in the rear of the lens close to the 2 screws -as you can see on the photo- i tried to unscrew it without success, but i went quiet softly as i am afraid of damaging it.
I'm also able to take out the front and rear optical element but can't go any further.

So, may anybody help me ?

Thank you all very much!

See if there is any adjustment left in your helical, otherwise you need to rebuild it
