Not sure about the Viking II, but in the Valiant, the internal fuse is only in the primary of the HV xfmr. The line plug fuses protect evertything else. I replaced the single internal fuseholder with a double one and used the second holder for a single fuse in the hot side of the line only and replaced the line cord with a 3 conductor and "3 prong prang".

You are correct and I noticed that after I posted. In the Viking II, there
is an additional fuse in the primary circuit which is mounted in a holder on
the chassis. Not so in the Ranger where the fuses are in that infamous fused
plug. My original
V II came with the fused plug and the internal fuse. The only possible
reason I can see for this was to protect the antenna relay socket regardless of
which way the line cord was plugged into the wall outlet. Seems like the
engineers would have just put the hot side of the socket on the other side of the
fuse and one problem would have been solved.
