My aim is to check voltages later this morning (Chicago time LOL), when my 1 yr. old naps.

Here's some more pics. One is a full version of the power amp board showing everything. And I hope the 2 pages describing the power amp section come out clear enough to read.

I did a test. 20v across B -E. Will double check hopefully soon.

Definitely recheck that. A base emitter junction behaves just like a diode when forwar biased. The volt drop can not exceed approx 0.8v even if the current continues to increase. If it were reversed biased then it usually limits at some indeterminate value but that's a condition that is never normally encountered. It's a no go area. For the NPN device (the MJE) the base will always be positive with respect to the emitter.

Thanks for the layout etc...

My readings are:
E 36.6
C 54.5
B 16.2
How I measure: Black probe connects to chassis ground and red probe does the measuring while unit is powered on. The collector reading seems right; just not "getting" why the other numbers are off so much. Looks like I'll be needing to do more probing to determine the problem.

I checked my pinouts on the new transistor a few times to make sure I didn't goof up there. Aim to do more voltage reading on other components on this board later today. Time to re read the manual lol!

It's reverse biased so something is seriously amiss...

The circuit posted is a bit blurry to work on comfortably... have you got it as a pdf ? You can PM me with it if you want.

Just going to post something for you to measure in a moment...

This isn't making sense...
Can you measure these voltages and record them... A and B are what you have measured already.

Will do. Working on a way to see these files better.
