4 6V6GT Wards Amp

4 6V6GT Wards Amp
About a two weeks ago I requested any info people might have had about a Wards JDR 8421 amp. Thanks to everyone that responded. My big question is regarding the 4 6V6 power section which seems to be very underpowered for 4 6V6's. The preamp stage consists of two 12AX7 and the rectifier is supposed to be a 5Y3 but I changed it to a 5V4 which gave the amp more headroom. I'm betting this could be a pretty cool sounding amp, but without a schematic I'm finding it pretty difficult to work on. Any recomendations or insights would be greatly appreciated.
