    Sir,

    Either stick one or the other or take it to a shop.

    No. Don't thread one in unless you want to strip your bottom bracket shell. Italian in righty-tighty on both sides.

    Measure the width of the shell.

    68mm = English/BSA.

    70mm = Italian.
    Ten tenths.

    English bb cartridge will slide right through an Italian bb. It should take you about a second to figure it out.

    What bike do you have?
