I've overhauled these things before...

1. The outboard bearing on both sides are absolute crap...buy a new pair from an LBS and replace 'em.
1a. If they have an inboard drive side bearing available, replace that one as well while you are at it.
2. Sometimes I find that the brake shoes have been installed backwards - turning them around fixes it.
3. You can't over lube these things - any excess will come squirting out the sides making mess just from simply spinning the wheel on the bike BEFORE you can ride it...trust me.

If the fixes I mentioned above don't work - wait for others who are more familiar with the inner mechanicals...
