I'm not familiar with your amp, but I'm not sure your new wiring scheme is the best way to go about things, especially with a capacitor in the mix. If you're trying to get rid of the thin plate, I would take those four wires as well as the two coming from the binding posts and solder them all together at a common point. That would mimic (electrically) the original layout, which your current scheme (as I understand it from what you've written) doesn't. Also, do you have a fuse in the amp for the high voltage to the tubes? This would be separate from the mains (AC) fuse. If so, check that first to see if it's still good -- the vibration could have busted the internal wire.
