Plush 1000s question

Postby irish77060 on Tue Mar 28, 2017 7:46 pm

Hello all,
I am a newbie here and asking for help on a Plush 1000s amp. I have already done significant work on it, but need to rewire the power cord. Since it is similar to a Fender Dual Showman Reverb, you'd think I could just follow the myriad of instructional videos out there. But I can't for this particular operation. The Fender has a separate ground switch from the power switch. The Plush has a single switch that changes polarity. Any veterans out there?

The three prong cord should be wired as follows, green ground to a secure lug, I usually use one of the PT mounting screws. White (neutral) from three prong to either of the black wires (primaries) coming from the PT. Disconnect and remove any original wires to the power switch, polarity switch and convenience outlet. Wire the remaining black wire (hot) coming from the line cord to the power switch, then out of the power switch to the fuse, then out of the fuse and connect to the other black lead (primary) going into the PT.
