    I think what you should do now is get the filament wires (pins 4/5 and 9) away from the grid wires (pins 2 and 7) in the preamp.
    Separate these wires by making filament vertical straight up from the socket....
    Grid stays horizontal and 90 degrees from the filament wires.

    Move the filament as far away from the audio path as possible.

    It looks like it's not soldered and you mentioned rectifying tube arcing... if it is properly soldered, sorry.. as you were... enjoy your new amp:band:

    Yeah, it was arcing at the end opposite the pins. I saw it before the cover was taken off the back.
