So I have got this Rev. G Rectifier from 1994.

I seem to experience a volume drop which probably is heat related making me think the caps and electrolytics could be dying.

Is there a list or kit I could buy somewhere?

Ask this guy of this ebay offering. He usually offers a kit with instructions in another offering.

Have you verified that there are not New Sensor brand tubes in the cathode follower positions? This is a known cause of volume drop-outs.

Will check. I think I threw a Doug's Tubes kit in there at a time. That would make V5 a Sovtek.

The loop send signal is ok, but it is probably tapped before V5.

Contact Mesa directly for the correct electrolytics designed to be used in the amp. They will probably cost you less than that eBay seller and won't have to sweat getting fake components.
