Dan, I just pulled the Nervar BB out of my 1976 Raleigh Super Course MKII. It's a 115mm ISO taper. I'd been running a 3 pin steel Campy crank on it.

Interestingly I have another, cheaper looking, Nervar spindle that is JIS taper.

Are you sure that 1970s spindle was ISO? ISO spindles didn't even exist back then, did they? If you were running that GS crankset on an ISO spindle, that would be an incorrect combination. Campy didn't switch from JIS to ISO until 1993.

Are you thinking two-degree vs. three-degree spindles perhaps?
