I must have swept up a good few balls over the years but have never considered trying to save them so I can’t be much help there I’m afraid. Having been “in the trade” the total cost of a repair was a balance between the cost of a guaranteed to work new component, and the workshop charge out rate. In the case of the ratchet assemblies it was no contest. I appreciate that you are working “pro bono” for a friend but we had a saying that “no one thanks you for a cheap fix” – if it works the saving is forgotten, if it fails, the attempted saving is forgotten also!
Paint. Briggs do/did list aerosols of their various standard engine colours but I can’t remember anyone ever ordering one. For a tidy up of black engine components I’d suggest an aerosol can of Barbecue paint available from most diy stores.
