Glenn, with 4 KT88's in fixed bias with 560Vdc on the plates I image you'll probably make a heck of a lot more power than 100W. Though I'm sure there's a fair safety margin designed into OEI's transformer I think you might smoke it... What about using a pair with the impedance selector set to expect half of your cabinet's Z (for a 3500 ohm primary)?
