Thanks AJ,

I unloaded the amp, powered er’ up and started testing voltages according to the book and as you suggested. All the values were within the given ranges give or take a couple volts. After some head scratching I loaded it back up with my test speaker and fed it a signal and WHAMO – it came right up!

Now to put it on a proper speaker with a guitar source and see what kind of tone I have. I appreciate the help.
