Hi,

In the builder's guide section about the 240V hook up, it says to run a wire from the tag where the black and red-white trany leads are connected, to the pilot light. BUT this is NOT drawn in the accompanying layout pic, AND looking at the schematics, doesn't make any sense to me. Kindly advise a poor noob who has only built one amp previously. Thanx.

Yes, it looks like the 240-volt layout in the builder's guide isn't quite right.

The 240-volt schematic in the builder's guide is OK. The white wire from the pilot light should connect to the tag block where the white/red and black wires from the transformer join. It should not go to neutral as shown in the layout.

If wired as shown in the layout, the pilot light would get 240 volts and it wouldn't last too long!
