Tube Bias Adjustment and Tube Testing

Some help, if possible. Has anyone performed a bias adjustment on the Mcintosh 2102 amplifier and if so, can you walk me through this procedure. In addition, I was hoping to get some insight into tube testing. What am I looking for with this procedure and how do you do it?

My amplifier weighs 90 lbs. or so and I am getting to the age where I can't carry it out to the car to get it worked on.
Thanks for your help
As I recall, the McIntosh 2102 is a fixed bias amp set by the factory, which means that you do not need to adjust the bias when changing output tubes (6550's, or kt 88's can be used as well)and McIntosh recommends that you buy replacements tubes from them (I beleive that they are sourced by Svetlana, though, and you will most likely require 12ax7a signal tubes as well). I would just call them and ask, the change out process should be fairly easy. You would need a tube tester or know someone with one to check the tubes yourself, but in my applications (Atma-Sphere) the small tubes need replaced every 6-12 months or so. I do recommend that you clean the tube pins with a bit of emory cloth before installing. Others please chime in if you disagree. Happy Listening,
All the octal pin based tubes I could think of use some sort of plating.Cleaning them with something real abrasive might easily remove the plating.If you could see actual corrosion on them,maybe use the finest steel wool gently at the most. Some may prefer Deoxit,or something similar.Don't leave a heavy film of Deoxit either.The miniatures like 12AX7's/6922's etc.,sometimes are gold plated.I think the same mellow process would work here.
I quit using DeoxIt a long time ago because of the film it leaves behind. I prefer a good cleaner with no film such as cleaners available at the Shack.
a good alternative to using emery cloth for contact cleaning is crocus cloth, which actually serves more of a polishing function. Sorry for going off-topic, but since we're already there...
Abrasiveness factor of crocus cloth is extremely light if any at all. Rub crocus cloth across your finger tip and it is very smooth compared to emery cloth, with which you can actually feel layers of skin being scraped away.
I use crocus cloth to polish away any oxidation surfaces from cables, fuses, switch contacts, relays, connectors, tube pins, phono cartrige pins, etc. It will not remove metal plating surfaces, just polish shiny bright.
