The old KLM was 5 L on a 42 foot boom and I thought it worked well. At least it worked well enough that I was happy.

Tim and Jim are correct. A 40-ft boom on 20M is a little short for five elements. However, someone once said that sometimes you just gotta use what you got. So, if you have a fairly recent copy of the ARRL Antenna Handbook, there is a design shown in the chapter on HF yagis for a 5-element, 20 meter yagi on a 40-foot boom (520-40.yag on the CD that comes with the handbook). There is also a similar design that comes with K6STI's YO software.
