When you get the parts in, I still think that there is a problem somewhere.  You need to go to radio shack and purchase (4) 8 ohm 20 watt resistors.  Parallel these resistors to yield a 2 ohm load.  We need to insert the resistors in series with the power wire.  This will limit the current draw of the amp to around 7 amps of current.  This will be very important when we power it back up.  We have to monitor the temperature of the resistor to see if something is drawing current.

Roger Dodger...Crap, my tip36's came in so far and they are NTE. Ima return them. Dude swears they are exactly the same and if they dont work....then there's another problem. HUH! Ima tell him to worry about getting me the right parts, this stuff usually escalates to a verbal assault. He knew what he was ordering, restock fee my @$$!
This is what I do for FUN!

Ok, the resistors were easy. Are we on hold with those until the transistors arrive?

Aight, I'll need a lil bit of time, I dont make any internet purchases, ever. That local store couldnt get us the right stuff. So, I got 2 stores to check that claim they have what we need but they're a coupla divetry miles away. Do NOT forget about me though non-idiot. I have learned a lot and have had fun working on this. It wont be too long.

GAAAA, Im not good at sourcing parts.....Or these dam resistors are obsolete. The sites keep claiming they are in stock and when I order them(which I've had to resort to) they comeback saying out of stock~! SOB's take all my info too. Got any other places I can try?

If you are having trouble finding the 8 Ohm 20 watt resistors,  go to an auto parts store and purchase an old sealed beam dual element headlamp.  I do not remember the number, it is a round headlamp that has high and low beam elements.

Did I say resistors? heh My bad I meant transistors...can you check these, make sure they are right? If so, I should be able to get these!

Yes the SGS Thompson devices should be fine.
