Hi Alex,
What type of tube is in your TV62? It should be a Mullard AW36-21 which has a cavity anode connector. No final anode cap on that tube. So is the connector attached to the EHT lead you need? If so, no difficulty finding one of those.

Yes the lead fits into a depression in the tube rather then on to a protruding cap. I was a bit wary of it because the rubber shield and the lead seem to be a single sealed unit which goes back into the lopt.

Get one from a scrap set and fit it to the end of the lead. Its probably corrosion from dampness that caused its failure.

Yep, the wire isn't very thick but the insulation is. Make sure the wire is absolutely clean, cut it back a little if necessary, clean with meths.
