2-prong to 3-prong ground conversion
I've got an old Sunn bass head that has a two prong power cord. How do I replace this with a 3 prong grounded cord? IF you have info or schematics on where to connect the ground, send to

Just put a ring connector (I have no idea what the official name is; it's one of those crimp on ends) on the end and secure it to one of the power transformer mounts using the nut to secure it tightly.  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Might want to check out the Boxer Amp site  
There you will find a nice explanation with a schematic to help make things clear.  
Have Fun, BC
