Hi Dick,
Looks like one of your 3-500Z's is gassy & flashed over. In addition to the added glitch resistor, be sure to check the .82 ohm, 1 watt resistor on the rectifier board. Any flashover usually takes out that resistor.

As far as the added glitch resistor, my Ten Tec Centurion had a similar sized resistor. I don't think the value is very critical.

sacrifice itself? The resistor looks fine no burns or anything. Should it be 
bigger or keep this size as a fuse?de Dick NY1E
