Default Re: KEL84 clicks and pops from right channel?

Yes, the other way forward is to try and provoke it.

Up-end the amp with it securely supported and connected in-system. Fire up and carefully prod/flex the pcb and input wiring with a plastic knitting needle or similar trying to get it to make the offending sound.

I sorted one of these same amps many moons ago by this method but even then only nailed it down to an area of a dozen or so possible joints which I re-soldered and bingo it was fixed To the naked eye it did look a good soldering job by the original builder too. So we have to accept there is a fault and start over...
