A thin grease coating in the hub and dust cap will prevent rust. Especially brand new replacement parts. These components operate at a higher temperature which may create moisture in the hub that was contained in the air in the hub. That moisture in contact with bare metal will cause rust. More grease than a coating loaded into the hub or the dust cap isn't needed.

Put races in freezer overnight, and heat the hub, propane torch will werk ....albeit slowly.

Hi, or if you live in California, just leave your hubs on your driveway in the Sun. [no torch needed]
