So I'm just took my first measurement. Without tubes i'm getting a ready of 113 at multiple points at the board. I was confused, but since I have a Sovetek 5y3 and now an NOS RCA, I figured i'd throw the sovtek in there to see what happened. Well it glowed and off pin 4 i got a reading of 363 which sounded reasonable from what i remember reading in other build forums. Am I ok to start taking other readings? I really can't operate the amp until my replacement tube socket comes in.
Also I'm going to be adding a VVR probably today or tomorrow, installing it where the power switch is now, and placing a off/stand by/on switch where the standby is now.
