I was on my way to the alcan convoy from ohio with my 1962 m151 I drove it 1500 miles until a coil went out and was out. I contacted a supplier to get me a coil sent to me it would take 5 days [long weekend in canada] the supplier called alot of resources and gave me of all thing a phone number in Regina, Saskatchewan he said he found a guy that lives here that helps to people with military vehicles. I called the number he gave me and ed answered and I told him what was going on he told me he would be there in 30 minutes.Ed W. picked me up and drove me around looking where to find a 24 volt coil when he called robin and asked him did he have extra ciols for m151. within 2 hours in the middle of Canada there were two coils that Robin L. pulled out of his personal m151 to see if that would get me up and running.there were some smaller problems with my 50 year old m151 went to robins farm and in his garage fixed the other small things.Ed and Robin L. had me all squared away with a room and a much needed shower[5 days of driving] You do not see or here of that these days what is the chances of driving a 1962 m151 1500 miles and running into a family that was so generous. this would not of happened without the help of a person[ ED W.] that I called form a forum like this that knew people in the hobbies like the one we are in..I do have two new 24v coils that are going to Robins home to replace the one I used. the people that read this will know ED W. and Robin L. and where they live from there generosity that they showed me.
