Question Luxman 3045 tube mono-blocks

I have achance to pick up a pair of Lux 3045 monoblock amps. Cosmetically they seem to be ok. However someone in the past tried to convert them to use el-34s connected in triode. The original out-put tube was designed specifically for this amplifier as well as the the out-put transformers by Tim Deparavicini of Esoteric audio Research. The info I'm looking for is 1. Is it still possible to find the output tubes (triodes) for this amp...and 2.I need to find a schematic for this circuit whether, I bring the amp back to stock(if posible), or I'm forced to find a substitute tube. Without a schematic I'm sunk. Is there any help out there? Thanks fastfreddd

Have a scheme for a 3045 with the factory mod for KT88 triode. It has all the stock info on it, the only addition is the two 100 ohm screen Rs and the voltage adjustments shown. It's the best copy I could make of the copy I have. I have the whole KT88 modifiaction 'manual' from Lux. I did a handful of amps in the early and mid 80s. I was a tech at a dealer then. Give me a email with a big box and I'll send a larger PDF of it. DIYaudio's limits the file size (rightfullyso!)

Dear Scott: This is Fred. I tried to e-mail you but I'm not sure if it went through. If it did just ignore the rest of this message. I just wanted to thank you again, and to say I'll be sending you a new e-mail add. within the next few days. What a great idea the D.I.Y. audio forum is! And once again thanks Scott.
