What is the input VSWR at that point?

Waste of time I suspect.

Trace the RF path all the way thru to the grids, sounds like an open. Are
the input network relays functioning ? How about the primary input
relay....that amp uses a DIP relay for the input.
Let me know ur progress... or lack therof. I have owned a LK500ZC since
new in 1987-88.
