Actually, pay very close attention to your cups - you may really need Swiss threading, which is just like French except both cups are right hand threads. Is this going in an old Motobecane? Had to do the Phil thing after a boy/bike/car meeting when I was an undergrad. I was all screwed up and had to exchange the parts several times until I got the right one - great people. Slapped that sucker in there 20 years ago and have NEVER taken it out - there's been no reason. You will need their little install tool.
