Thank you, yeah that's one I've come across a lot but as above I am concerned the fit might be a problem with the sealed units, in pics the diameters look a lot higher than the space I have to fill, the two pics below show, what I've pulled out and in the second you can see the tube I am having concerns about....

Has that got a zerk fitting in the BB shell? If so, take that out and then knock out that sleeve that's in the BB shell.
Then a cartridge BB will fit fine.

Push that bit out, it's a crud cover.

though possibly the nipple holding the cable guide on is holding it in place (a water drip nipple ?). Take that off if it doesn't budge

OK, yeah, removing the nipple helps, its out ;) If I remember correctly it's a grease nipple FluffyChicken, whip it out and squirt some grease into the BB chamber through the tube I have just ejected.
