Default Croft Series 4 PL519 regulator

Does anyone have the Schematic/circuit diagram for the B+ regulators in a Croft series four, they use a PL519 ECC83 and an 85A2....

I have a ton of PL519 tubes and want to make a regulator to drive KT66 power amp output stage...

thanks..

I don't have the schematic. But i do suggest you take a look at this. Tube Based Voltage Regulators - Part 3

Beware that if you decide to built one of the said regulators, you must use insulated windings for the heater of the PL519.

kind regards

Can you not just give it it's own (dedicated, floating) heater supply?
