The 813 will do 300 watts out at 2000 volts 200 ma all day long.
They also work well at lower voltages.

I would use a pair of 100TH's or 100TL's rather than abuse 811's.
The 100TH makes a good match for the 4-65, both are rated to 3000 volts.
I would trade you some 100TH's for 811A's but I don't think tubes
ship well, especially 100TH tubes.

Yes. A regular mod trans usually does not have a tapped secondary.
I know how it goes, sometimes you have to build a rig to use some
really neat parts or tubes!
