I bought an 88 X60B head with the 6L6’s but cant seem to get the effects loop to work. Ive already replaced the tubes and have the chassis out (since i have to clean the enclosure, considering it REAKS of cig smoke) so ive made sure all the wires are connected. It had the 3 prong XLR on the back for the switch, but im wondering if i just need the switch to flip on the loop?

Looks like your assumption is correct. See the footswitch schematic here:

When I was using the GT-100 on my X100B, to get the channel switching to work on the GT, I had to custom-wire a 1/4-inch cable. No big deal, really. I just left one end as-is, but soldered a 1/4-inch jack on the other end wired opposite of what it normally is.
