Spacers, online or bike shop. They are still used today.

Like setting hub cones, it's very easy to overtighten the cups of the M950 BB and wear the bearings out. AS above M95* are Octalink V1, shimano 105 (5500) and dura ace are the same, but aren't available in the same lengths as the original M950 BB.

Ps) I have a 50 mile 105 BB 68/109 available for £25 posted. The middle ring of my (gifted) cranks is incredibly worn & I can't find a replacement so the whole lot is not a lot of F'ing good.

Pps) When refitting the cranks take the dust covers out as it's very easy to not engage the splines.

Ppps) See my thread here compiling all I can find out about M95* cranks & BB's viewtopic.php?f=1&t=252065&hilit=octalink

Excellent thank you both

I managed to get a couple of 2.5mm spacers from my local bike shop this morning but I got blank looks when asking for 1mm spacers to suit my e-type mech side

Any ideas with hyperlinks where to get 1mm spacers appreciated

Thanks

According to the details above the e-type either uses none (73/116) or just one 2.5mm spacer (68/113)

Ahh yes from ze german diagram above I can see for my 68mm shell I require no spacer on 'rechts' and 1No. 2.5mm spacer on 'links'
Links being nothing to do with chain means left

Thanks again
