Mark is correct. There never was an NR triple BB spindle.

The 1982 catalog, on page 32, which I am looking at right now, shows a 744/1 triple spindle, along with #746 and #745 RECORD non-rifled cups.

The NR cups are part numbers 746/A and 745/A. These are to be used with the 744/A Nuovo Record spindle.

Page 31 of the same catalog actually shows the spindle differences much better. Note the difference in bearing shoulder spacing between the 1046 set (wider spacing, Record), and the 1046/A set (narrower spacing, Nuovo Record).

End of story.
