Plate load choke needed

I have a 45 SET with a 6J5 input stage. I am considering trying a plate load choke on that stage like that in Herb Reicherts 'Feral Eye' 2A3 PP design (SP #14). That design used the Tango TC-160-15, a part that is no longer available. it was rated at 160 H @15 ma. No info on the core, etc. Does anyone make an equivalent?

you say you need a plate choke for a 6J5--- and that the part spec'd in the original application was rated at 15ma/160H.
first thought is... generally a 6J5 will be run at less than 10 mils of plate current... the author of the circuit may have been using a 15 mil rated plate choke cause it was simply available to him....
so.... first see if you need the 15 mil rating....
we can also regap the standard EXO-010 for 15 mils of plate current and then you would achieve 230H of primary L while maintaining the same AC max operating levels.
