I pulled the tubes, I started to pull that resistor to shunt, but I wasn't really sure it was the right one since the shape,color and placement are completely different than the older versions i was going by, and I didn't want to be sorry some how, so I am storing the tubes as of right now. Plus, if it is lifted, does it mean you cant run it as a combo? As long as the tubes are out i'm fine,right? Now that I am sure of the circuit, I'll go back and do it later if need be. I was thinking it was a CAP from your drawing not a Res?
I have played it now two days straight without fail, sparks, electric shock, flames, smoke, you know, the usual sign you fucked up. The tone sounds great too, super HOT preamp, but the hiss is there since the rest of the parts are stock still. It's not bad at all, but it could be better. I WILL be doing the rest of the mods, and I will post pics for the further future research at the RUKIND Institute of Technology.
As for the question about where to get the info to start, Waldo's site is the most up to date and comprehensive. Dozin's site works too and has helpful live pics, but know it is not the 65 twin Blackface circuit, I believe it is a silver face?? that may not matter. Thanks for all your help. I couldn't have done it without y'all.
Finally finished our new site...
