Vitus 979 BB

Anybody know the correct spindle length for a Vitus 979 with a Campy Super Record crank? I tried a Campy 68 112 mm with Campy cups and it's too short. I'm finishing up a build-up with mostly NOS/lightly used parts. Any other tips on this old-school classic?

I answered you in the C&V forum. 114.5, marked 68-SS or 68-SS +1.0 +1.5. Good luck!
