OK So what follows will be shots taken from inside the chassis. Ive got two concerns... well, 3 actually. 1) I hooked up the voltmeter and got NO reading on the filter caps. Granted the amp hasnt been plugged in since the store, AND I pulled the power tubes, but shouldnt the filter caps retain some residual charge - unless there is a short? (edit - I added the power tubes again in case the circuit simply wasnt complete... the readings did not change) 2) I think I see a bulge on the top of one of the yellow barrel caps. No liquid from any caps, but the bulge (if it is one) warrants replacement. Also, theres some discoloration at its base. 3) I was worried about oxidation from the OUTSIDE of the amp... The inside of this thing looks like it did two tours with McHales Navy. Anyone know if this kind of oxidation will hurt the circuit?? Its all over. Maybe the entire amp has to be rebuilt?? If rust IS a problem like this, would using Naval Jelly be a possible solution? Or might that eat the PCB and/or electric components? Not to mention the fact that I cant remove the naval jelly with water... I am concerned not just for the rust on the connections I can see, but for those under the PCB. I think thats gonna have to come out for inspection/work. BTW before it comes to that, there are still electric readings I need to take per discussion on the PROJECT TWIN thread. Started this new thread to clean things up, and keep it current. Thoughts?
