My build is coming along nicely. All the wiring is really straightforward except for the PT.
It's the 4 black wires. I've looked at pics of other builds here, (thanx Dave) and from what I can see is the Bl/Rd and Bl/Wh lines are twisted and go to the 'C' lug on the 1M on/off pot used for the VRM.

I'm unsure of what to do with the Black line and the Black/Blue line coming out of the PT. I'm not sure which one is the primary.

I hope my explanation makes sense, and I'm hoping to get some help from the more experienced electrical people here.

Thanx

Clay

On the Tweed Power Trasnformers, there are 4 Mains leads. We have actually moving to this for all our PT now. There are tow primary windings

120V PRIMARY CONNECTIONS
120 V - use the primary in parallel hooking Black/Red to Black/White and Black to Black/Blue
Connect 120 mains across Black/Red and Black.

Thanx Stephen,

Excuse my extremely limited electrical knowledge.

So, to put this in layman terms, I would tie both the black and the black/blue from the PT together, and connect these to the white (neutral) coming in to the box?

That's right. Slide a piece of heat shrink tubing over the black and black/blue pair before connecting to the white and then slide the tubing over the joint and shrink.
