In the 70's and 80's Zeus also used 16mm head crank bolts, and since they also used Campy compatible extractor thread, rather than the larger diameter Stronglight extractor thread, the bolts really were a tight fit. Stronglight crank bolt sockets (which used to be really cheap in the 70's) would work with Zeus cranks, but many of the other 16mm sockets that would work with Stronglight cranks had too thick a wall for Zeus cranks. If someone has put 16mm bolts in a Campy crank, this would be exactly equivalent to the old Zeus setup.
