Re: Symptoms of bad coupling caps?
Yeah if it's only the one tube/socket, then it may be a bad connection somewhere after the bias pot. Check from the bias pot up to and including the faulty socket. Like Dave suggests, measure the bias voltage (with the amp on standby) on the problem socket.

haha, i dunno, but im a BUSY hacker these days.  
Actually im in college in toronto,  
Its awkward fixing things in a dorm room, but it sure is easier to get parts here!  
Ive overhauled 2 traynor YBA1's, a VT22, and a DR in the last 2 months.  
Lots of fun stuff.

OK, good for you!  
I didn't know you went back to school old man.  
I thought you'd have your own repair shop going by now... ;>)  
I don't know how in the world you were getting your parts before.  
CU later..
