pre assembly questions
« on: December 01, 2020, 05:46:01 PM »
Hi all,
I'm reading through the instructions while I wait for my crackatwoa to arrive and I have two questions

1. Page 28 we are wiring two green wires to c7/c8, does it matter which is connected to transformer 12/14?

2. Page 30, why are we wiring two resistors to socket D but not B

Thank you

Hello,
Regarding question 1, no it does not matter. Regarding question 2, Those 2 resistors create what is called an artificial center tap and only needs to occur once on that heater string. It is used to reduce noise on the heaters.
