Can someone tell me if I have a frame that fits an American BB, can I fit a Different type BB in my frame?

it seems you do have an American BB and i believe you can buy adapters that make it fit a sealed Mid BB, but you will need a new set of cranks or 8 spline spindle.

You can get an Adapter to fit a Mid BB in.
