Did you mean to say 8416? I can't seem to find a datasheet for an 8416.

The filaments are in series, and a 6DJ8 has higher filament current
than an
8056. So the heater wiring topology will need to be altered. Furthermore,
how much current can be safely drawn from pin 15?

The 6DJ8 is a 6-volt version of the very expensive 8416. I assume a mod
as simple as adding the appropriate resistor to the heaters. Has anyone
done this before?
