In that amp, they used 6488s in the supply. In most of their amps that used 6488s in the supply, they used wires or had the bases connected directly to the drive circuit (no resistor, no jumper wire).

There was another thread where someone was repairing one of these but I can't find it. Maybe someone else can find it for you.

Are you sure that the regulators are supposed to be the 317/337?

If the center leg of the positive regulator and the first leg of the negative regulator are connected together and also connected to the shield ground, the regs are the L7815 and L7915.

There are lots of options for the rectifiers. If you're using the Motorola parts, the MUR1620CT is the positive rectifier. The MUR1620CTR is the negative rectifier.

2 are rectifiers. The other two (with the legs connected as I described) are the regulators.
