BB Question

After a process of elimination, I'm pretty sure the BB on my Cayo is on its way out (regular clicking cadence related that takes a few hundred yards to start - eliminated pedals, shoes, saddle etc)

My BB is marked with BC1.37x24 Road and a direction arrow - which, after searching about, suggests its a Shimano English threaded BB.

If I'm correct in this (<- first question), can I replace it with any similar spec BB and, if so, what would people recommend? The Dura-Ace BB, for instance, seems to be well-regarded on Wiggle. I'm guessing mine is a 105 as it's a 105-equipped bike generally.

    Yup, English thread. You can use any Hollowtech II BB, plus look at others such as Hope if you want better durability.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
