That is clear now thanks.
I guess I got to find a different TX for my ECL82 project.
What about wiring the Fil.
A ecc83 takes 6.3V pins 4 & 5 and CT pin 9 and 6V6 takes also 6.3v pin 2 and CT to pin 7 (I believe) ... so how can I wire this 2 valves using 6.3V-CT-6.3V
Thanks

Someone mention that I could probably use and I quote ''you can put them in parallel to give you 250VAC @ 160mA'.....how does that going.
Forget it.
That suggestion was based on your poor verbal description hinting at 2 250V secondaries , while you only have one.

Same confusing description as before.
You have *one* center tapped 6.3V secondary.

For the ECL82 project I need 260V @ 100mA ...so I'm a bit short of current here.
