You need quite some expierence to do that.  gpgsplit is the tool to
use: Decomposite the public keyring and replace the secret (sub)key
packets with their public counterparts, the cat everything back

Using a backup will be far easier.  However you need to figure out
what went wrong in the first place.

gpg --list-packets keyring

should also give some insight.
