Thanks to the folks that responded so quickly.  I went back to do a bit more troubleshooting and found a 60 year old mistake.  The grid of the pentode section of that 6U8 was supposed to have a 220K resistor to ground.  The builder of this one, who did a very good job, put a 2.2K in there instead.  He must have been a CW op only.  Putting in the 220K brought AM to life, even with an 8 meg screen resistor.
