Subject: [CR] SR bottom bracket axle question

I searched on the archives to no avail so..

I have a couple of Super Record alloy with steel races bottom bracket cup sets with no axles. I know these take smaller ball bearings, 3/16s I believe. Can I substitute a Campy steel axle (e.g., 68-SS-120 etc) and have it work ok?

I know I can just put one together and measure it but if someone already knows what will (or won't) work that would save me some time.
