More Info:

I am not sure as to the operating parameters of the 3-500z for L-7, but here
are the way the tubes are run in the L-4B:

CW-Tune:  1900V (no load) ----  1760V @ 560ma (under load)
SSB    :  2600V (no load) ----  2400V @ 800ma (under load)

The Idling Plate Current is as follows for the indicated tubes in a DRAKE L-4B:
