Hey Guys, I'm working on an amp that my Cousin owns, but is currently not working properly. The amp is a 5E3 DP-III. Pretty cool little amp. PTP wiring. Has a 5F6A tone stack. Two inputs which allow for a Fender style input triode or a marshall style input triode. In my troubleshooting I believe the problem is stemming early on in the power supply near the rectifier. I'm only seeing about 16 vdc from the output of the rectifier to the filter caps. There was a period of time when he had it out of an enclsoure, and it seems like the rectifier tube was bumped pretty hard. It cracked off the little keyhole nobbin on the black plastic base. The socket seems kind of messed up as well, as I was not getting a consistent voltage with a replacement rectifier tube. I reviewed some of the options with my cousin and he was most interested in putting in diodes, using the tube socket as a turret strip. I have some 5408 diodes on hand, so that would be a pretty simple fix. However - here's my question - in following the output of pin 8 on the rectifier tube socket it sends a yellow wire back into the power transformer. Then a yellow / black wire comes out of the PT to the filter caps. My multimeter shows continuity from those two nodes. Any idea what is going on with the PT receiving input from the rectifier and then outputting to the filter caps? Can I just run an output from my two diodes to the first node of the filter caps directly?
