Peavey 5150 Tubes

I have recently obtained a block letter 5150 head, have no idea how old it exactly is. It contains 4 Sovtek 6L6WXT tubes, however two of them are slightly shorter than the other two and one is brand new as I had to replace one. Also I have no idea what 12X7s are in it, and I have no idea how to access them. Let's put it this way: I know nothing about tubes, and am looking to obtain the best possible killer hard rock sound in regards to 80s metal, ACDC type sounds, EVH sounds, etc. Thank you very much everyone! Also a few of the Sovteks are covered in permanent marker with random numbers.
