Default Help needed identifying 1962 marshall bluesbreaker (reissue) power tx connections

Hi, I ordered said power tranny 2 use in a home build amp as it has GZ34 rectifier. Recieved tranny TXMA 00109. Connections on 1 side r 3x 6.4mm spade lugs being center tapped 6.3vac heater supply & 3x 3.2mm spade lugs(?) being center tapped 350vac a side HT supply. Also on this side r 2x black insulated multi strand leads (unknown). 5vac rectifier heater supply maybe? On the other side r 2 pairs of connections. 1 reads 4.2 ohms, the other 4.7 ohms. Maybe 2 halves of the primary winding, 1 at 120vac & the other needing to have the connection bridged for 240vac operation. Any help will b greatly appreciated. Cheers

Beats me. Here is your schematic - parallel for 120v adn series for 240v on the primary side. And here is the wiring for an older transformer. The resistances may be instructive there.

Thank you Enzo, that about wraps it up. The secondry 6.3vac heater supply & 350vac a side high voltage supply were unmistakeable, & the 2 flex leads exit the windings either side of the 6.3vac center tap & read 0.9 ohm, obviously for connection to the rectifier valve base directly adjacent to the tranny. I was reasonably sure the middle 2 connections of the primary needed bridging to put the 2 windings in series for 240 volt opperation, you have just confirmed this. Thank you. Cheers
