Default How to test output transformers

Could somebody fill me in on how to check output Xformers. I've got four old 6L6 amps I'll probably part out and eBay(unless someone here is interested) and I think one of the outputs is bad.

Thanks!

Lee

Hi,

Before you start measuring make sure all caps are fully discharged, this may take a few minutes.

I found a good guideline on the web so there no point in anyone rewriting the book:

TESTING OPTs.

Cheers,
