About a year ago I fixed a Ranger with one of the transformers from Antique 
Electronics supply. I think what you're looking for is a common 3:1 or 4:1 
interstage with a center tap. Right?
Go to the Tubes and More website and they should have them listed there.  If 
I'm not mistaken it's the transformer that is a reproduction of a big 
American manufacturer's offering from way back when,  The price was around 
$20. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll take a look and see if I can 
ID it for you and let you know.
