Step one in this job will be to get the amp up to stock specs. To do that, I wanna replace the power supply filters and put in some new output tubes. I have some preamp tubes I can use now so there is no need to buy any right now.

So I need to order some caps (About $16 plus shipping and tax from www.mouser.com) and a set of output tubes. For the tubes, I think it would be best to stick with a tube closest to the 7027 in sound and performance. So rather than switch to 6550 I would prefer to go with a stout 6L6. Iprefer the European tubes over the Russionas, so I suggest the Tesla/JJ 6L6GC. They are $59.90 for a matched quad from Triode Electronics.

Tesla makes a drop-in 7027, but I am sure the guts are the same. Don't need to spend the extra cash, especially since the sockets in the V4 are wired for 6L6 anyway, need no changes.

Those always worried me the most. Can you find replacements for those now, I never saw them listed in the past.
