Update on my PS-2V..

The relay kit installed is not the original PTR-1 kit that was put
together by Multi-Products.  This relay is a Western Electric 24V unit
where the original supplied was a 24V Potter & Brumfield unit.  The
relay is supposed to be powered by the 24V tap coming off the filament
transformer.  However, this installation is powered by the dedicated
6.3V transformer that has been mounted to the top of the plate tranny.
 There are then three diodes and a big 1000 uF capacitor in between
the 6.3V tranny and the relay.  I don't understand why it was done
like this at all.
