Your the man Billy, thank bro!!!!!! :wink:

If you keep the unused channels volume at 10 then you probably wont even notice any gain difference since at that point it would theoretically be 1.47M vs 1.27M. If you keep the unused channels volume off then you only have 270k vs 470k to ground and obviously the 470k will give you a larger signal. If you keep the same value bypass cap you can check out the sticky on calculating RC time constants.

If the amp has 270k that doesnt mean its pre 67 because they still showed up in amps after the 470k's but the 470k's started being used at a specific ttime.
Clay Finley's document which is posted in another thread references dating by 470K mixer resistor.

Two questions.

1- could anybody post a diagram of the jumpers/buss wire connections/and whatever other connections are needed "below the board"?

2- help me with the diode on the far right of the board. I can only find pictures having it bend left to the top of the adjacent 10uf can, is that a better way to connect the diode so that the choke, OT center tap and red lead from the HT fuse can have that corner turret separate to be soldered to?

Dan's layouts showed the connections under the board -- get the '67 layout from the "Layouts by Bily Batz" sticky at the top of the Marshall (?) forum......

And on #2, yes, bend the diode over so you have the extra turret to use as a junction point.

Thanks again Flames.
A couple more easy ones. (for anybody)

1- just to the left of the first 10uf can George has a single 8.2K resistor. Billy and Dan's layouts both show dual 10k and 8.2k. Which is preferred and why?

2-do I connect the negative feedback wire (from the 8 ohm tab on the ohm selector switch) to one end of the 27k resistor that the other end connects to the right tab of the presence pot?

Because my layout is made for both the earlier 67 style amps with the 2" OPTs and the later 67 and 68 amps (12 series). The vast majority would have 2 resistors or at least space for 2 resistors (one may be bypassed by a jumper wire.) The resistors only add together for a higher resistance. Nothing special but the early 67 amps with 2" OTs probably would mostly have the single resistor there. In fact I just use one myself. I can buy a 5W or 7W 18.4k or 20k but I mostly just use 10k there.

Yes. The other end connects to the presnce pot and the PI tail a couple spots over (as a jumper wire on the board). YOu can use the 8ohm, 4ohm or 16ohm tabs. Whatever you want. 8 or 16 is probably the most common and original. 16 would be the 'cleanest'.
