SSL Console Low Volume

Hey guys, I’m still learning my new (old :-) SSL4000 console and I got a question:
When I send my main signal out of the Console and into the master tape I use the „Main Output and Distribution“ Outputs on the Patchbay.
But the signal comes out with a really really low volume even when all concerned faders in the chain are at maximum. Is there a way to grab the signal at a higher volume ?

Thanks a lot guys!

What to do is set the internal oscillator so it reads 0 vu take a patch cable and get a volt meter and set it to AC. Patch the cable in the main out left or right. Put the range to auto and place the probes on the tip and the ring of the patch cable. You should read around 1.2 volts. If not then you should check for warn out caps in the center section.. let us know.
