Negative bias supply problems

I found a circuit on the web that uses a 24 volt transformer and a voltage doubler to provide the -32 volts I need. Assembled everything and was able after a few adjustments to get the necessary voltage. Hooked it up to the secondary of the interstage transformer I intend to use and the voltage fell to -0.4 volts. The secondary only measures 400 ohms so what else might account for this drastic drop in voltage? Thanks for any help, this one really puzzles me!
