Probably a very silly question BUT did you thoroughly clean both weighted ball and the physical rod(s) and roller it turns against in the mouse ball cavity?

These old mechanical ball mice are notorious for having the rods that turn the interrupter wheels jam against the rotating ball due to an uneven build up of gunk on these rods. you can use Isopropyl alcohol and cotton buds to clean stubborn gunk off the ball, the roller, and the two x-y rods.

Having up and down work when compressed air is rotating the interrupter wheel indicates that your wired connections are probably fine.
