Need A bottom bracket for my Nishiki International

It's time to replace the BB on my 1976 Nishiki International (http://www.salt2salt.com/scans/SD/SD.html). I pulled the crank off and the axle measures 35mm x 52mm x 39mm (126mm total) with 513T stampd on it. I can't seem to find a sealed cartridge equivalent. It's not even in Sheldon's database! Of course I'll call the LBS tomorrow, but I'd like to know the answer in advance so I'm sure I'm getting the right item. Any ideas?

Loose Screws has incredibly cheap (like $13) sealed cartridge BB's from Shimano right now. Not sure of length though but it's worth a look: http://www.loosescrews.com/

I'd go with a 127.5 shimano, it should be close enough.

this be the one, damn good price too.
