I have sent several 5F6-A replica amps out the door with disabled standby switches. Bare in mind, that amp had both a ground and a standby switch so there is no need to convert the ground switch to standby. I just leave the defeated switch in place and you can flip it back and forth for excercise if you wanna. I used to install them as they were vintage wise until someone told me about the potential for shock on failure and I decided I didn't want that kind of liability with my amps. Sure, maybe it's one in a hundred thousand, but, I'm Irish and I got that kind of luck. Better safe than sorry I say.
