Default Marantz TC-5 choke value

Well, I have been listening to my trusty 8b for about a week while a friend is borrowing my Aleph-X. Everything was working good until my daughter started yelling that the amp was smoking! Once it cooled down and the smoke cleared, I found the power supply choke was the source of the smoke.
The schematic (and the choke) both show that this is a TC-5, but the do not provide any values for inductance or DC resistance. Does anyone know what value that this is supposed to be?
How common is it for a choke to overheat like this in an amp of this age? Is this a sign of a larger problem?
