Well, looks like the spindle measures out at 142 mm. Can anyone confirm this, as there is really no modern replacement axles out there.

I actually just had a new bottom bracket put in a Fuji Gran Tourer that I am rebuilding.
If you go to Sheldon Brown's website, there is a database he put together which tells the size of bottom brackets, based on a two digit code stamped on the BB.
If you've taken the BB apart and can find this code, you should be able to find it on his site, and then he also shows modern replacements for all the sizes.

OK. Its a 3SS so its a 121.5 . I was measuring to the ends of the threaded not the square tapers.

Yeah, that is the same one that was in my Fuji Supreme. I measured it out and took the spindle with me to the LBS and they hooked me up with, iirc, a UN-54. It's supremely smooth now.

The UN-54 is on my list.
I still can't get the dang thing to budge. I went and got the stuff to make a Sheldon Brown style Bolt/lockwasher tool and still no go. I am thinking of putting the Sheldon tool in the bracket, then put an impact rachet on my air line and pop it a bit. It may take a little shock to drive it off. Looks like Fuji had paint going inside the bracket, which may the seizing compound that won't let the thing move. Heat has not helped either.
