That depends on your cabinet(s). if you have an 8 ohm cabinet you want to use your 8 ohm out. if its a 16 ohm cabinet you want the 16 ohm out.. etc.. etc. etc.. owners manuals will tell you these specs

No Power after Valves glowed bright

This could be a transformer failure. Take it to the repairs shop.

I Have A Peavey Valveking head and cab. I was wondering what inputs for the OHMS to put it on if i were to be playing in a band. 4, 8, or 16? and what input do i plug the speaker cable into on the cab, the...

The answer all depends on the impedance of your speaker(s). A single speaker can be plugged into either jack. Set the switch to the impedance of your speaker. If you use two speakers, set the switch to one half of the impedance of the lowest impedance speaker. Very few speakers are 16 ohm types. Most are 8 ohms and some are 4 ohms. You could plug an 8 ohm into each of the jacks and set the switch to 4 ohms for example.

In my Valveking VK100, fuse F203 is designated as 13.15AL250V Where can i obtain this fuse for repair?

This means you need a 15 ampere, 250 volt fuse, 13 is just an identifier for part replacement. You can find this fuse at any Radio Shack or other electronic store on the web. It may be a plug in type or it may have pigtails on it that will need to be soldered in to place.
Hope this helps.

Amp has power but tubes wont light up

Fuse F203 fuses the power to the tube heaters... however if the pilot light is on that fuse is OK.

A diode full-wave-bridge consisting of D206, D207, D208, and D209 rectify the power for the tube heaters. A failure of one or more of these would cause the problem.

C210, C211, C212, and C213 (1000 mfd/35 volts each) are suspect and R213 (1 ohm 5 watts) series resistor.

ALSO look for circuit board cracks through the traces and BAD solder, especially on the resistor as they sometimes get hot and solder degrades.

I have schematic if you need it... email me.

My Valveking isnt working at all, the light wont come on, i can hear the power on in it but the tubes wont warm up, i dont know if they are blown or what but im not getting any sound response other than...

There is a fuse in the heater power to the tubes and also the pilot light. In some of the Valvekings it is labeled F203... not sure on your particular unit. In this one it is shown as a 3 amp fast blow. Since it feeds a bridge rectifier diode, it is possible a diode may be shorted or a couple electrolytic capacitors that follow the bridge.

I just bought a used valveking 100 half stack and the 1st channel does not work, second channel works but seems to have a loose input jack as connection is intermittent and affected by wiggling the input...

Same thing... they probably broke both jacks. Sometimes the guts of the jack is broken and it doesn't appear to be broken but is broken internally. You may find broken solder on the pins to these jacks as well.

Note that the two input jacks have a different gain.

Here is schematic:
