Also, your use of non-standard terms indicate that you might be working on the bike without accurate guidance. I would suggest you check at Park Tool Repair Help. Go there before you rely on YouTube videos, which are not always complete or even accurate. As noted you can't at all count on the cones (not bearing cups) being compatible. It's more likely they are not. If you have enough axle length the fix may be as simple as putting extra washer width on the right side or shifting the axle and then sawing off the excess on the left end. Make sure the damaged part is actually where the nut ends up, rather than where the dropout sits on the axle. In any case I would caution against jumping into ordering parts online. Check with your local shops - both Cyclewright and Overmountain have multiple good reviews.

Thanks for the info.
I'll check with CycleWright since I have dealt with them before. I'm sure they can order the part I need.
