Jumpering channels to get dirt on your Fender-style amp

I'm almost sure the double inputs were not designed to do this, but it's a great mod. In fact, it's just coupling the inputs, but with some resistors? Is there then 130k between the two channels in a Deluxe?

I'm just trying to squeeze some distortion from this this dual input PA tube amp with 2xEL34:

I would like to wire this up with a switch, maybe even make V1b a dedicated distortion path. I think I tried jumpering the inputs, that didn't do much. But will test again tomorrow...
