I have a 1966 Deluxe Reverb. The power transformer has the correct codes. But the wires emanating from the transformer in the chassis are not cloth-covered, they are plastic covered. I'm assuming, as the codes are correct but the wiring is plastic-covered, that it's a rewound power transformer? Any thoughts? Thanks.

Some '66 BF amps had plastic covered wires out of the P/T, including my '66 Pro Reverb and '66 Vibrolux Reverb and '65 Deluxe. Not unusual.

Bump: just wondering if anyone else out there has a BF Fender with a power transformer with plastic-insulated wiring, rather than cloth. A friend of mine is skeptical and I'd like additional ammunition to convince him that the P/T is original to the amp.

Plastic is correct. Here's a shot of my '61 Vibrolux PT.

Hard to slip anything past you fellas! :D

The caps and cord have been done, but the selenium rectifier has not. Not sure how to do that. Can I get a new part, or does something else have to be rigged?
