Now I am really getting confused.

I have contended all along that it takes about 20w drive.  Everything 
seems to work well including 100% mod when I drive with 20w.  Only 
problem being that the tubes redden.

As a point of interest, I am using 6L6's in the modulator but assume 
they just won't last as long and not effect the amount of modulation. 
Is this a good assumption?
