R15 measures 25.80k Ohms
R16 measures 25.28k Ohms
R17 measures 24.82k Ohms
R18 measures 24.09k Ohms

R11 measures 198.0k Ohms
R13 measures 351.8k Ohms
R9 measures 329.3k Ohms

The expected -300V lines measures -292.2V (measured from cathode of Z10 to anode of Z1).

Because it was low, I measured Z6-Z10, which gave me a result of -143.7V

Would replacing the resistors and zeners with newer, identically spec'd components be the next step?

going with better spec and higher rated will not hurt just a space thing The zeners are not that far off. The resistors do replace as well as the diodes d1 thru 6 with soft recovery diodes{ her108 or uf1007} the originals are 750 ma 600 volt diodes. check r6, r7,r8,r28, replace if off. while at it check the 3 pots zero, 400volt and b+ . also r1 in the top bridge. so far this is a low cost repair.

Hey guys, just wanted to share the good news: I finally replaced the resistors and the tube (I just had another 6AU6 tube lying around and thought of giving it a shot) and that did the trick! I now have a fully functional tube power supply for the cost of a few 3W resistors. Thanks for all your help!

R15, R16, R17 and R18, just clipped the leads off and desoldered the stumps, and soldered in new 1% 27k 3W resistors from digikey.

Glad to hear it running for you.
