Rule of thumb...I aim for all voltages in a cathode follower to be a third each of the B+. My schematic I commonly use.

.....in concertina I don't bother with split cathode resistor.
solong it's DC bias strapped to preceeding stage which is in control. I've always assumed since the stage operates with fantastic neg feedback, the concertina distortion is already extremely low or an be ignored if Correctly operated..

The B+ is approx 360V which is off the pic.

Well, that's not exactly the case with my current values. A B+ of 300V and anode/cathode resistors on 3.4k each.
At 15mA, that would result in a Vak (voltage drop anode to cathode) of 198V.

I don't know if I misinterpreted the values in the datasheet.
Ua is set to 200V for triode mode.

C3g is a high gm pentode.. your drawing shows g1 to cathode and you are using the screen as signal input: Correct ? That changes my equational picture somewhat.

It shows (or at least it should show) g2 to anode, g3 to cathode and g1 (not marked) as signal input.
