If you plan to use the No.2 transformer be aware it has no circuit protection of any kind.

Right now Tom it's my only choice. Going to investigate why no voltage across the variable terminals of the 100 watt transformer. Hopefully it's a loose wire, regrettably it's probably an open winding.

Since there is 15V across the fixed terminals the winding is good. It is likely there is a bad connection or the wiper is not making contact with the windings.
