    anyone know if the cartridge dimensions differ between English and Italian Shimano square taper spindle BBs? I have been looking for an Italian one that is shorter than the one I have but find lots of english threaded. since my existing cups are removable on both sides I was thinking of using those with the shorter length spindle cartridge from an english BB. perhaps all the difference (threading and shell width) is done by the cups and cartridges are identical!

    No, cups differ is all. We swap cups ITL and BSC, on those UN-72/3, 91, all the time. The innards, w/o the cups, are all the same.
