In a message that arrived from Tony, W5OD after the last response I 
sent, Tony asked that I post this since he is not able to pass the 
information efficiently.


I know of a man in Arizona N7AF/Dave who built a TUBE tester for 
Transmitting Tubes, then either sold it or somehow it ended up at 
Antique  Electronics Supply.

But I know Dave could help you just look him up on QRZ.com..

Very nice Ham and in fact a few years ago, he had a NEW set of 
V70D's for my GK-400b which I was able to get from him.
