Silvertone amp
Just got my Silvertone ("1481," I think?) amp in the mail (bought on ebay). I am looking for the "usual" information.

Any known problems or easy mods?  
Know where I can get a schematic?  
Suggestions for replacement tubes? (2x6V6, 2x12AX7, 6AU6, 6X4)  
The stock 12" speaker has some small holes around the edge--do I recone or get a Weber? If Weber, which one do you think?  
P.S.: It's the same model amp that's pictured at this ebay auction:
