    Most likely square taper.

    You will be happy to know the sealed cassette BB's for square tapers will fit. main thing, remove old bearings, measure axel width (somewhere near 110mm or so). Then measure the width of the bottom bracket shell on the frame - should be about 68mm (73mm is MTB's).

    If you haven't a clue, take it to a bike shop.

    Failed after 26 years? What c**p quality.:laugh: Get yourself some decent replacements from SJS Cycles. (They do direct replacement bearing cups and balls, but with a rubber seal to keep out water).
