You shouldn’t plug it in until you’ve done some investigation into the integrity of the radio, you could cause irreparable damage to some components. The tubes are the least likely things to need replacing. All the electrolytic capacitors sshould be replaced, and any paper capacitors as well. Check the resistors and look for bad wiring.. It’s safest to use a “dim bulb tester” when you do power it up to avoid damage caused by shorts.
