One more quick question and hopefully I will be done. There is one more diode in the bias supply. If that also was damaged it either works or it doesn't correct? I am able to adjust the bias and it is stable so should be ok?
Based on your description of the problem, there's no reason to think the bias diode has been damaged. You know, I'm surprised the short across the caps didn't blow the HV fuse. The limiter must have been responsible for that. You might want to consider replacing those 1N4007s with something better at some point in the future. I use fast recovery 3A types in most builds at this voltage level. Glad you got it working!
