If you have a drum brake 3 -speed hub, be sure to grease the bearing on the left side ( unscrew locknut, remove cone adjustment washer, take off brake assembly, unscrew axle cone and put plenty of grease between the balls that are usually in a retainer) If this bearing runs dry and for some reason the bike falls or leans to the left, the oil that lubricates the hub can reach the drum brake pads and ruin them ( they soak up oil) The excess grease you put in the bearing not only lubricates that bearing but will also act as a seal against the oil.
