How to determine necessary PT specs?

How to determine necessary PT specs?
Thanks Lee and quatrovalvoli. I have a more general question as a result of these discussions- How does one determine what ratings on the PT are required for a given amp project? Hammond (for example) offers a large variety of PTs with different secondary voltages and current ratings. How does one determine which to buy? I know that a certain HV supply voltage is necessary for the 'Tweed' sound, but how do I go about figuring this out for the 5E3 Deluxe? Some Fender schems have voltages written at various points, but the 5E3 schem doesn't. Thanks for all the help!
