Help figuring out what replacement power transformer I need

For a marantz 3300 pre amp. Unfortunately the primary winding is open circuit. The schematic doesn't show the voltages coming out of the transformer but it does show that + and - 13.5v should be coming out of the power supply board after the rectifier, does give some indication of the value of the secondary windings of the transformer?

So to put that in simple terms, I need a replacement transformer with a secondary winding voltage of between 15-18v? Since the pilot lamp is powered from the transformer would it be possible to find a replacement which also has a secondary tap of a few volts for the pilot lamp? If not would it be sensible to wire an Led from the switched outlets on the back at 240v? Or use a tiny separate transformer (space is not an issue) to power the lamp?
 
You need 15- 18 V each side of center tap so it means 30V - 36Volts ..

Most of the time catalog gives total voltage and a note to indicate that there is a center tap... it looks like this ... 36V ct

You can also look at the nameplate of the unit power consumption is usually written there
 
Often in Europe a centre tapped transformer is written as 15-0-15. You will more likely find transformers with two identical secondary windings, so 2x15V. You can connect these two windings to form a centre tap arrangement.

Its unlikely you'll find a transformer with the winding for the pilot light... consider replacing the bulb with an LED, which you can power from any DC voltage available.
