    Hi guys,
    Just an update. I replaced the MOSFETS, as both were totally shorted. All other parts checked out ok.
    Powered up after the dim bulb check, Variac started to hear audio. Full voltage, a brief test it was functioning good.
    I set the bias adjustment per specs on the schematic. All voltages looked on spec.

    It sounds great, the effects functions as it should.
    One thing I noted, it did not use thermal paste on the MOSFETS. Paste was only used on a small transistor held down by the heat sink>
    The MOSFET used 'Si pads', which I read it was not recommended that thermal paste to be used. The parts did not get hot at all after 1/2 hour of being powered up.
    Thanks to all that gave he help on this amp, it's really appreciated.
    If any of you all ever need a diagram or help with a vintage radio, give me a shout.
    Take care, Gary.

      Silipads by themselves are fine.

      No need for the grease.

          Thank you Kiki, Unfortunately the EService page didn't have the model I needed at the time. I was able to get the diagrams from another member, and I subsequently repaired the amp. Still working fine after replacing the MOSFETS that were all shorted. I usually check Eservice as sometimes they will have diagrams on other things I work on.They are a good resource.

          Appreciate the reply though, have a great evening!
          Gary.
