Good news: they are indeed 6402 type hubs, so 130 overall and cassette compatible.

bearings feel smooth, but a little dry. going to overhaul these over the winter.

anything special to note on the OH? Standard loose bearing hub procedures i assume.

6400/6402 hubs are awesome. I had a set that outlasted 3 pairs of rims. I had them from 1997 until last year. I sold them (as part of a wheelset) through the forum. I expect that they are reliably serving their current owner today. Yup, standard cup/cone/loose ball bearings. Use grade 25 stainless ball bearings and they should be super smooth. Take a close look at the freehub body to ensure it doesn't have any cracks.
