Does it matter which prong the hot and ground are on? Is the hot normally hooked to the switch or the fuse? Sorry for the newbie question, I just don't want to blow anything up on this vintage amp.

on those old amps what I like to do is re-wire them slightly. I'll go wall-->hot (black) to fuse-->fuse to switch-->switch to PT primary, then wire the neutral (white) --> to the other PT primary. Then find a bolt close to the power tube cathode ground point (or even the power tube cathode point itself) to hook up the green earth ground connection (soldered preferably). And then I use a separate, fender-style, strain relief on the new cord screwed to the cab to be doubly safe. My 2¢...
