First of all you have to check all electrolytic capacitors in the power supply and the power amp section, then in the rest of the amp, almost all will be out of specs. Also the pre-amp gemanium transistors can make some noise in the signal and may be exchanged.

Set the amplifier to 240 Volt in Europe.

The sound of this amp is excellent: typical germanium early transistor amp performance.
