Eric, you may have trouble finding you zener diodes since it took me a few days to find my Babychamp 5000. The interesting thing about it is that it has a 50L6 instead of the 35L6. You will see on the back panel a small sticker to that effect. By the way I do change all my AC/DC 5 tubes radios to 50L6 for peace of mind. An 82 ohms resistor is perfect for dropping 12 volts and I use them in empty octal sockets to isolate stages from one another. Tell us about the zener in the cathode circuit when you find them.
