Which cathode resistor for 6L6 Champ?

PeterWhich cathode resistor for 6L6 Champ?
Hi,  
 
which 6_L_6 cathode resistor value would be appropriate for a 5F1 Champ to bias it correctly between cutoff and saturation?  
 
The B+ with a GZ34 is approx. 378V or 405V (depending on which PT tap I use).  
 
The PT and OT can handle 6L6 tubes, impedance will be correct.  
 
Peter
