Help with power tanny please

ScoopsHelp with power tanny please
I'm converting an untraliner Super Reverb to blackface specs.  
The power tranny has a bridge rectifier on it that I'll have to keep.  
There seems to be a center tap on the high voltage side, but is it really a center tap?  
The original circuit has the lead connecting to the middle of the first filtering stage, which when I connect it, bumps the DC voltage up to over 520Vdc.  
Without it connected I get 460Vdc which would be perfect.  
If I left this lead unconnected, would it do the tranny harm?
