I've done a 25kV supply replacement on a Mk3C with complete success.
The supply is spec'd at 25kV with a ripple of 3 Vp-p.
The only hassle was with regard to the interfacing to the Mk3 EHT 
control system.
I haven't tried a 30kV supply yet but would like too.
X-rays are supposed to be a possible concern up there but reportedly 
with a thick faceplate tube, I beleive, you get virtually nothing out 
the front.
