    I'm not exactly sure how you would know. I mean, you would have to know the OEM design specs for the transformer model to make that assesment.

    Shit! Total rookie move on my part. I completely forgot temper it after quenching. Hmmm, I should have done it right after, if I understand it correctly. Do you think it's too late?

    Its not a centertap, because it’s off center and there are only two connections to the transformer at any given time, or its off. Look at the schematic at think about it in terms of turns ratio....

    According to the schematic, If you’re trying to fuse and switch out the hot, you should be connecting the neutral right to the black wire. (See bottom of transformer schematic drawing).

    or he's smelling deoxit heating up and evaporating from the tube sockets if it just came out of the shop.

    The good news is there is no high voltage in the cable runs. The 4M7/470R divider is built into the socket.
    I like the idea of pulling the PI tube.

    yeah, plus, that's something I could test by tack-soldering onto an amp socket to test out before I open it

    Right, I was just going to say that the original cable is not shielded. I would like to keep the original cable. There is the reason of vanity, of course, but it is nice and flexible as well.
