Default 50EH5 Tranformer Question

I am going to build a 50EH5 amp from this site: http://www.t-linespeakers.org/tubes/SEP_50EH5.html, I will be using isolation transformers. What primary ohm rating should I use for the output transformers?

If you follow one of the links on that site it says 2.5-3k primary.

The tube datasheet gives an example 1 tube class A amp. 3000 Ohm OT.
However, that will give you a very poor speaker damping factor in pentode mode with no N Fdbk.

Look-up your tube at Frank's.... the factory datasheets tell you good operating conditions.
