When you say anti-sieze on the axle, you not talking about where the drum is pressed axle taper are you?

You want that taper / drum interface dry and torqued to 200-250lbs. Its that interference fit that turns the drums/wheels/tires etc. People in the past have put grease and other substances on that to taper to make it easier to disassemble in the future and doing so could lead to problems as then the keyway is the only thing preventing the two from turning against once another under load. Eventual sheering the key.
