Thanks in advance. Jac

I just whipped this one up for you. It's based on a pic of one that I scaled off off. Will work fine but not 100% sure it will fit an exact champ chassis.

OMG Thank you Coco. That's exactly what I needed. This will be my first build. I'm going to build Dave Hunter's amp from scratch. I figure then I can go on to a lightning and an 18 watt. I've researched evrything to death. So your transformers will be next. Price doesn't hurt either :P Thanks again, Jac

It's very hard for me I've been and out of the hospital for .... The meds affect my brain, so I have a hard time concentrating. I'm determined tho to understand this, because I love the complexity and simplicity of an tube amp. I appreciate everyones help from all of the forums.
Thanks again The lightenng's next!

I've already looked at that.
I'll move everything except the main filter
caps in about 1/4 inch top and bottom if I need to.
I have a bunch of carbon film resistors that measure
2-3/16" end to end. Most other resistors I have are around
3" end to end.

Friend has original champ board and he measured 2"center-to-center
hole spread.
My modern era 5f2a (BBQ) measures 2-1/2" spread.

I looked at an original 5e3 some years ago and I'm pretty sure,
if memory serves, that's how it's board was set up.
Wider spread for the main caps, and a little narrower spread
for the rest of the board.

That is why I'm looking for vintage board drill guides, but
can move everything in closer to original if need be.

Would just like to be "Period-Correct"
