For ISO 400, the time of 9 mins 45 seconds is correct at 20C/68F. This is published in most of Kodak's data sheets. If you are using a different time, please explain which data sheet it comes from and whether you have tested it. The time posted in our chart has been widely used by many people over many years, so should be highly reliable. Other published times may be unreliable.

My initial impression is that 9:45 for undiluted D-76 is way too long. I would start at 6 minutes and go from there.

(searching for data sheet).....https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... kHAZQb-bGq

Kodak's recommendation for Tri-X Pan in full-strength D-76 is 6:45 in small tank.

The time is for 1+1 dilution as in the original posted question.
