There are no correct replacement bulbs as far as I can find. The part numbers are Heathkit numbers so they are useless. I haven't found any bulbs that match correctly. They are about 60mA @ 10.5V but the closest ones I found are not bright enough. The meter bulbs and selector switch bulbs are all the same.

This is one of the reasons these amps are cheap, you can't replace the bulbs with correct ones. LEDs don't work either, you won't get the right color and the right light dispersion. The filters are a particular shade of blue that combines with the light of the bulbs to give that distinctive green color.

I don't know the years, mid 70s, look through old catalogs online.

Early amps were rated 60W/ch @ 8ohms, later spec was revised to 70W but no changes to the circuit, just the specs.

Don't know if there were any factory assembled ones or not.

Yes working fine thanks.

Check your DC offset, it's not adjustable.
