I read somewhere a "rule of thumb" is 10 ohm 10watt per 1kv
So an SB220 "needs" three of that and like it was mentioned should be the good quality pulse rated type power resistor. Ameritron sells one.

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.

My SB220 stopped operating, with no plate current and pegging the grid meter after a bright light out of the rear fan grill. It seems an added glitch resistor opened, 10 ohm 10 watts doesn't seem big enough. did it do its job and sacrifice itself? The resistor looks fine no burns or anything. Should it be bigger or keep this size as a fuse?de Dick NY1E
