Has anyone done an Alpha 76A 8877 conversion?
I'd be starting with a 2 holer
that's been upgraded to a bigger Dahl  
transformer, been recapped, and
otherwise in good shape.
I've been looking mine over carefully, and it looks
like the tube would fit 
 nicely, IF I relocated the blower outside the case on
the back, and fitted 
 the new filament transformer in the space previously
occupied by the  
Obviously some chassis work would be involved,
but for the long run, it  
seemed like it might make more sense than doing the
3CX800 conversion, as I  
already have a suitable filament transformer.
because I haven't seen this done on the internet, I suspect there is  
reason it's a bad idea, or maybe just too much  work.
Any real mechanical or
electrical downsides to trying this?
Thanks for any thoughts.
