If by "this" you mean the B+ being fed through the filter(s). Yes. It's 
normal on at least the early receivers.

Howard Mills normally removes the B+ from the filters when he overhauls a 
radio, as do many other people as far as I know.  It is a very good 
idea.  I don't have my copy of "The Compendium" with me, but I seem to 
remember at least one of the articles in it details this mod.  If you don't 
have "The Compendium" I suggest you get one.  You can download the SB's and 
SIL's from:

(sorry, can't help with other questions because I don't have any manual or 
radio at hand.)

>(3) Where is the filter socket pin 1 "bus" ground point supposed to be?

I seem to remember that the ground(s) for the filters are mentioned in the mod.
