bottom bracket cup Qs (i searched, I promise) HEEELLLLLP!!
Boy there are alot of BB threads, and I just finished clicking through most of them, and I couldnt find any info I needed. So here goes nothing.
#1) I'm installing a campy record bottom bracket into an Italian Benotto. I put in the the fixed cup first. It was a little hard to NOT cross-thread it but I managed to get it started just fine. Screwing it in by hand went smoothly so I know there was no cross threading going on. I installed the fixed cup by hand up until the flange was about to make contact with the BB shell and then I started to use my BB tool. Upon the final tightening, I noticed that the cup was about one millimeter short of making contact with the shell on one side. The other side was making full contact with the shell and I had it down TIGHT. It looks as though the BB was cross threaded no more than HALF a thread. This cant be though because the cup screwed in effortlessly. Is this normal? Does my BB shell need to be refaced or something?
#2) Do the campy cups with the neoprene seals work with the campy spindles that are used with the "rifled" cups?
