Front hub

My front wheel was making sum fu*ked clicking sounds the other day and i run a ****y joy tech unsealed hub, i took it apart to find that on the left side the cone was cracked and about 7 of the 12 bb are chiped and ruined, i cant afford a new hub, so i was wondering if you guys had any ways to fix this while i can save up for a new hub, or should i just grease everything like crazy and throw the b!tch back together and ride it until its unrideable?

Yeah, keep riding until is seizes completely, possibly while going downhill. A maintenance lesson learned.
