    I'm having a difficult time locating resistor's for my SVT VR. Does anyone have a source for the VR plate resistors which are 5 ohm, 3W, 5% flameproof and the screen resistors which are 220 ohm 1/2W.

    You can get the 220, both carbon film and carbon composition anywhere, like Mouser or Allied.

    What does the 5 ohm look like? Is it wirewound ceramic, rectangular, or shaped like the 220 except larger?
