Is it one of these? An 833 in a WAVAC, or another view of the same tunes in a diy amp <a href="http://enjoythemusic.com/nynoise2001/preshow/bobdanielak.jpg">here</a>

Thank you too, FIMike.

I searched a bit and finally found that the tube is the CV18.
the url is: http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~hu_amp/cv18-3.htm
and
http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~hu_amp/cv18-1.htm
and
http://www2u.biglobe.ne.jp/~hu_amp/srppdr.htm

See what i mean by resembling the 4 stroke, especially when it has the top contacts connected, like the pics of the first and third link?

Thank you all, once again, for all the help and guesses!
I'd already seen the V8 block FIMike indicated. It's pretty cool!

Bye!

Looks like a Harley. Lets just hope it doesn't rattle and leak oil like one :D

Here's a better pic for you Petman, as well as a datasheet for a substitute tube <a href="http://www.duncanamps.co.uk/tdsl3/pdf/vm309.pdf">DET19</a>
