Hi Russ youre right about the dmm, i put in a fresh battery. now reads 497v B+, 119v at primaries after adjusting voltage regulator back to previous setting.

OK, you want those 6.3 V windings in parallel. The datasheet shows different colors than the picture on the sheet (and your picture), but they tend to be a bit inconsistent. It *should* be blue-to-blue and green-to-green, but it is easy to figure it out. Just connect two of the same-color wires together and put your meter across the other two. If you measure double the voltage (~12.6), you are putting them in series and not in parallel. If you measure almost nothing, then you already have them in parallel and you can connect the two loose wires together.

The sticker on the side has been accurate for me every time as far as diagrams/colors go.

That did it! thanks so much Russ. Only tested one channel, but there was music! B+ at 445v with 6l6s...
