Well, a snag has arisen.
When I turned on the PS, I had 1700V on the meter. When I pulled the 866s
to wash them, one was cold, because of open heater. On a whim, I put the
good one on the other side and got NO DC! Yep, one side of the nice Kenyon
is wide OPEN. I opened the case, but the windings are potted in tar and
there's no hope for repair. It's now in the recycling pile! I don't have
anything of similar size that will do 1700V, si I'll likely make up a bridge
for one of the lower voltage ones I have and feed with a variac.
Ho Hum, still a nice amp and a fair deal...
