Go for 20 k. Where we were yesterday. We'll get into the channel differences later

Ok. Seems both channels circuits are ok. Now we found the problem, the grid was floating. Always a learning.

Now, the difference might be tube differences, lets measure your current again. Measure B+, over OPTs, 100 R if you want and over 20/15k resistors.

After that, you can plug in scope and measure ripple before and after 20/15k resistors. That can give guidance on how to best drop that voltage without rising the impedance.

Try also what you started with. Some squarewaves thru the circuit.

Another lession learned: Dont ask whats wrong when your circuit doesnt follow posted schematic. We could have found that much quicker. Right?

The grid floating, the cathode resistor don't grounded, etc I'm a complet disaster, thank you so much for your kind support and patient with me.

Now is time to do some scope measurements with calm.

Your right channel idle current is 1.8mA? Either something is wrong with the circuit, or the tube is old. Exchange tubes between and measure again. Also, show the measured voltage between grid and ground.
