Exclamation Anyone able to test B4 & B5 Base Valves, please/

I'm experiencing problems with a Philips 274A, in particular no output, and suspect that the PM24M o/p valve to be faulty (low or virtually zero emission) Is anyone able to test this and other valves for me, please? Perhaps foolishly, I sold my Valve tester quite a few years ago!

My VCM163 has a B5 socket on it, though don't recall ever having used it.
I'm about 10 miles east of Chipping; please PM if interested.

I have a VCM Mk3 and a CT160, both of which have a B5 base and the needed set up data. Near Abingdon Oxfordshire. Likewise PM.

VCM163 - lucky guy! They go for upwards of 1k now, after being skip fodder 20-ish years ago.

Sorry not to have PM'd you, Craig - an oversight on my part. However Barrie (Bazz4CQJ ) has kindly offered to test the valve(s) for me.
