With the exception of the body I would say that the 151 is far superior than prior vehicles.
It is a much better ride, easier steering and braking.
Working on it is a dream compared to the 38s I have owned.
The problems we see right now are compounded by distance, experience and a variable source of parts.
Assisting by remote control is laudible but not necessarily efficient or effective.
My only suggestion is the be thorough and persistent.
Dont give up the fight!

Today I changed the distributor for one with points instead of Swiss Control module. It fired up straight away and revd up smoothly. In the morning I will check the timing and idle speed then take it for a reasonable test run. Hopefully my problems have all gone away (well the MUTT problems at least).
