Campy 151

i have a campy 151 bcd crank arm and ring for my new build, but does it require a special sized taper.ive heard that i need an older bottom bracket. does anyone ride 151? what bottom bracket do you run?

151 refers to the chainrings, nothing to do the bottom bracket at all.

yes i realize this, what im asking is since it is an obsolete chainring size, is it also an obsolete bottom brackett taper size. a modern bottom brackett works with them?
