    Shimano DA 7400 BB spindle

    Okay...this is a bit of a noob question.
    Does the spindle on this BB have a specific orientation? I'm only asking because its already installed and the chainline is out about 3mm. I wonder if flipping the spindle will help move the drive side closer to the frame. The amount of spindle showing doesn't appear to be equal. Can you tell I'm a shadetree mechanic.

    Worked perfectly.
    I'm jazzed that this BB fits perfect with my NOS DA crankset.
