6L6 pin 4 reads higher than pin 3--this ever OK?

I'm probably taking this thing to a real tech anyway, just curious.
Dr.Z Galaxie sounding a little off.
After checking bias, the 6L6 sockets read:
pin 3 376v
pin 4 380v
pin 5 -33.5v

current draw at Weber bias head 45ma

In all the amp voltage charts I've seen, grid never reads higher than plate.

In my BF Champ, of course, that's another thing:)

Thanks for clarifying, my terminology was vague, mainly because I don't know this stuff like you guys:)
Yeah,
I'll get this checked out by a real tech.

If your amp uses an ultralinear output section these voltages would be normal. I don't know of DrZ is of this design.
