Putting together a rear road wheel hub. Please help

Someone gave me road wheels so I can replace my old ones, however, the rear hub came in a ziplock back. He told me he was having trouble with his old bearings so he bought new ones and opened everything up to change the bearings and then never finished he project. He just put all the parts in a ziplock bag and put it aside until he gave it to me. Now, the bag had some holes in it and I personally have never put a hub together and have no idea if there is anything missing and in which order things go back together. I am mechanically inclined but I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction (and also let me know if any obvious parts are missing(or if something in the bag wasn't supposed to be there)). Thanks a lot. By the way, the wheel says Ritchey WCS

I pretty much know only Shimano freehubs. I would try to contact Ritchey or try (hub service manuals near the bottom)
