is the spindle asymmetrical? ensure you have the spindle installed properly.So I'm installing a C record bottom bracket on my bike. The adjusting cup has 9 mm of exposed threads with everything snug so the non drive side sticks out 9mm more than the drive side. Does this make sense?
because cup and cone bb's work great, especially campy ones.Why wouldn't you just use a cartridge?
Wrong. The width of the bearing surfaces on all sizes of axles will be the same, because all bottom bracket shells are the same width...Italian is @ 70.0mm, BSA is 68.0mm. Since this frame is Italian thread it should have the widest bearing seat dimension. A 107, 111, 113...whatever...they'll all have the same dimension for the part of the axle that's actually inside the frame. Only the outer part w/ the flats is longer. It does look like something is messed up here, but I'd have to see the frame & bottom bracket to figure it out.Something isn't right based on that photo. Normally, the lock ring ends up pretty close to the outer face of the NDS cup. It looks like the BB is too long for the BB. It will certainly work, but your feet won't be centered over the frame. What is the width of the BB shell?
Larger? Campy BB bearings are 1/4". How big are your bearings such that you have displaced the adjustable cup by that much?The bearings were installed correctly. It really looks like the bearings are the wrong size for this application. They are larger, thus not allowing everything to seat correctly causing the offset.
