Bottom Bracket ๐Ÿ‘

So… how do we fill that hole so it fits the crank axle? Again, I’m all new into this do-it-yourself bike building stuff. After researching the internet I found out that I most likely needed a BB86. At least, that’s what the VeloBuild website says. It looks the Shimano DURA-ACE Press Fit Bottom Bracket 86.5 mm shell width (SM-BB92-41B) would suit the bottom bracket. I must admit, this is all very confusing to me as their product code says BB92 but the specs say 86.5.
