The Gate draws no current if the FET is working properly.
In this case there should never be any DC voltage across the gate stopper.

The LED has you scratching your head. Measure the voltage across it.

20mV. No Vdrop across R11 or r12. It seems to me that it is the Jfet.

You need Vbe first for the fet to tick.

Just relax. Walk away and do something else while your trouble shooting braincells recharge

First HV thing to do and that being SSHV2 on own inverted PCB ain't the easiest job. Tell you what, if it ain't gonna badge on reasonable debugging, continue with the pre, run it on additional RC cell to nominal B+ and wait, we gonna put PCBs out reasonably soon 'cause the protos hit 100%. OTOH, Mike, have we got one spare proto for Buzz? I think all are out already? No?

840 or 170? No output voltage would suggest a short after ccs, correct. If detach sense wires from main rails, i shoul dread full voltage, correct.
