Re: Runaway Bias (driving me nutz)
I appreciate all the suggestions from everyone. I got the negative bias voltage to around -65, but it makes no change in the MA reading on my meter and there is no change when I dial it up and down from around -45v to -65v?? This is a seccond hand 40year old PT, is there any chance that the trouble could be related to this old iron?  
Bruce suggested I get the screen voltage down from (+-) 534v to more like 450v. OK, how do I do this? I havn't got a clue.  
Any suggestions are more than welcome.
