    It's not in Sheldon Brown's database...
    but you can figure it out if you've got a square-taper BB of known dimensions, and a ruler. It just takes time and measuring effort. (Assuming you've got the crank to begin with).

    First, I'm sure it's a JIS taper (used by everybody except Campy and a few companies in Campy's orbit, e.g. Stronglight).

    Second: mount the BB in the frame (assuming 68mm English BB shell) and mount the drive-side crank on the drive-side of the BB. Tighten the fixing bolt down hard. Now you need to measure the chainline. Road chainline should be 43.5mm from the centerline of the bike's tubes to the centerline of the two chainrings (so in between the chainrings).
    You also need to pay attention to whether or not the cranks take a symmetrical BB spindle.
