b-1000 power transformer

Hello, I am attempting to restore my b-1000. The chassis had been completely stripped of components. Everything has been wired up with new parts, but the power transformer keeps popping fuses. I have narrowed the issue down to the high voltage taps. If the amp is turned on with the HT leads detached from the rectifier, everything is fine. When I attach them to the rectifier, The fuse goes. I have tried a bridge rectifier circuit and fender twin style circuit. What type of rectifier was used originally in this amp? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
