Will this bottom bracket work with my bike?

I need to replace the crankset and BB on my early-'90s Raleigh technium Olympian road bike.

From a previous thread ( Need new crankset for older road bike, but don't know (specifically) what I need... ) and discussion with Harris Cyclery Tech Support, it appears that it takes an English 68mm bottom bracket.

I've located a set of used Dura Ace square-taper cranks and BB that came off a Trek 5500 OCLV.

Can anyone tell me if these will work on my frame?

Yes. I'm pretty sure the trek will have a 68mm bb so it will be the same size.
