This will sound dumb, but clean it out , all the grease in your cups . Put clean bearing grease in there, get a pair of needle nose pliers. Now put as many bearings as you can without crowding. They should fit tight in there with very little if any play, the grease will hold them in. Now with your cone on the axle carefully put it past the bearings while holding it in turn the wheel over and put bearings in the cups on other side. Thread that cone in to zero backlash and back it out till you have a tiny amount of backlash. Put your seal in Hold the cone with cone wrench and tighten the thin nut snugly. Do other side.If you do it right you will have same number of balls on both sides.
