Default Re: Rectifier

My very limited experience has been that selenium rectifiers go high forward resistance but would be OK in the reverse direction.
You could try to leave the existing bridge in place and connect a W08 (1.5A 800V) bridge across it. W08 Bowood electronics 30p. If things get hot, then remove the selenium rectifier and make a tag strip for the W08.
You could open the can and put four 1N4007 or UF4007 diodes inside. (1A 1kV)
