Forgot the brake lube, known as brake assembly lube, often red and with lots of cling and high temp so it will not migrate to the linings. This might be synthetic. Used on anything that moves the shoes or is a roller or adjuster.

This is the grease that Randy Gross sent me to pack the bearings on his rear brake drums.

Thanks @100IH and @alexiskai for the tips.

I already bought Timken's wheel bearing grease as I saw it was being sold by Bratton's (https://www.brattons.com/wheel-bearing-grease.html)

Would this work for the rear wheel bearings or do I need to start over and use the other ones that you have suggested?

For lubricating other moving parts (rollers, adjusters etc.), I have used white lithium grease. Hope that would be fine.

Remove the cam and put a rod/drift into the cam shaft hole with the other end in a vice. Put an adjustable wrench on the end of the lever and shear the remaining shell of the rivet. You can then wiggle it off the cam shaft. Don't worry about hurting the lever as it's forged and way stronger then the drilled rivet shell.
One more question - now that I am putting things back, what's the easiest way to mushroom the ends of the new camshaft lever pin?

The grease recommended by Aleskai is available on Amazon. It is a fiber grease made specifically for use with drum brakes.
