Thank you very much for your inputs. I was thinking to do the same to add private constructors first then do other things. But after your reply I think better to pick one class at a time, and check everything for that class which includes removing public modifiers, method and fields. Marking classes members as final and all your suggestions.
We would start picking classes one by one, and check all its references and finally make necessary changes for each class. In that way we would be able to match the classes with purpose. This is better way to fix this design flaw.

I would suggest when refactoring such classes to apply everything that has
to do with visibility including:
- Removing public modifiers if not needed on class, method, and field levels
- adding private where appropriate
- marking classes, methods and fields as final where appropriate
- marking method arguments as final where appropriate
So I would consider a private constructor to be just one of a suite of
activites that I call them collectively as visibility and mutability which
are important to provide real isolation between the components with minimal
My 2 cents
