I have a Shimano external BB that's got worn bearings in it

If you want to see if the cups or bearings will work I can send you it karma as I'm interested to see if it will work, don't think it will but you never know till you try ;)

:lol: The curious mind eh!
what bb is it? as some of the bbs are varying widths as you know
so obviously looking for wider but that said i wouldve thought all the bearings/cups would be same outer diameter at least?

Just a bog standard Shimano external BB, possibly Deore/LX level kit.

All Shimano external MTB BB's are interchangeable and as far as I know the same size to accommodate this feature

You could have larger diameter cups to accommodate larger bearings with the same diameter axle...
