Would 4x 3005 work in this application? I'm dying to know if you've tried that out yet.

How about clever girl? (jurassic park reference, raptors make me think of green, and I suppose they are a bit like wolves)

The amp wasn't on Craigslist but some other stuff was. I met with the fellow and we got to talking (and jamming)! The amp was tucked away and he said he could never get it working after he picked it up on the low a long time back and wanted to get rid of it.

As far as what it's doing- it's passing signal, albeit weakly, tone controls all work, vibe and reverb do not. Pulled the chassis and everything appears original.

Yea Alan was right- the 5e3 felt a bit like a 1590A. And thanks for the pointers! That gives me somewhere to start after the cap job... I got the chassis pulled and did a visual check of everything. Everything appears original except for a rerun of 2 OT wires. In regards to the opto, any idea of the sub?

I honestly don't even know where to start with this thing. First off will likely be a recap, and then troubleshooting from there. I'm still learning the ins and outs of tube amps with my 5e3 build and the universe goes and drops this into my lap. Definitely a mid to long term project for sure....maybe I will start a thread when I get the ball rolling.

Who knows how much time and effort (money)I'll spend getting it back to its former glory, but I'm a lot more excited now that it has  fired up and sound comes out!

I know I feel like my entire life I've been hearing about people getting insanely good deals but it never happened to me. Except for this time :)

Is what I picked this up for. Definitely needs some love, reverb and vibe Dont work (yet), but she powers on and sounds decent enough for me to be excited at what I got this for. The guy I picked it up from thinks it's a 73 or 4- I haven't checked the transformer date yet. I think with some extra love this could end up being somethibg great. New project ftw!

I think it's safe to say most of us will preorder.

I had the same problem with those jacks (and couldn't figure it out for longer than I'd like to admit). If you've got some rubber grommets around you could use them to isolate the jack from the enclosure. Doesn't make for a sturdy jack though!
