I'm installing the right hand
brake. I have everything new
including the 4 steel balls. My
question is. Do I put grease or
anything on the 4 steel balls or
install them dry?

Also anti-seize the threads on the brake rod so it will adjust down the road years from now.

i install them dry if you use grease or never seize on them it attracts dust and gums everything up

I agree, no need to put anything on the balls...you don't want dust and dirt sticking to them.

After 45+ years of putting antiseize or wheel brg grease lightly in the ball pockets, I've never seen any problems. I have however seen lots of rusty balls and pockets that have caused trouble. Remember, I have relined brakes in some tractors three times in 45 years and will continue to coat the balls and pockets with some sort of lube. Suit yourself.
