Good point Ingo!

Towards the end of the service manual (
the PSU schematic is displayed. There's a full PSU diagram, and an overview
diagram. The latter shows a straight coupling between both DC grounds of
the 12V and 6V lines, however the first diagram does not! Confusing, I'll
measure this in the actual unit to be sure.

Assuming both grounds are connected, what you wrote is applicable here. So
it means I'll have to start looking for a transformer with dual independent
secondaries for 6.3V and 13V (or 12.6V). Anyone knows one? At least 7VA
