I would leave the Clubman alone. If you want a KT66 amp buy a Route 66

The heater currents are almost the same (EL34 1.5A, KT66 1.3A) so that part is fine. Output Z is similar, but that's not super critical so no big deal there. A socket wired for EL34s can accept KT66s. Where you're going to run into problems I think is (1) the cathode resistor is too low, which will cause the KT66s to run too hot, (2) size: KT66s are approx. 3/4" larger in diameter than an EL34, which means you need at least 2-1/4" (and preferably 3") between sockets (center to center).
