```76 complete B-block peals

I have found 5 different ways of rearranging the contents of a whole number of B-blocks to give an odd number of round blocks, where the peal can have 76 complete B-blocks extracted from the sixes.

71 round blocks (a)

This arranges the contents of 18 B-blocks into 5 round blocks using 33 plains, giving 71 round blocks in total.

This arranges the contents of 14 B-blocks into 1 round blocks using 24 plains, giving 71 round blocks in total.
This set of blocks has an upper limit of 711 bobs for a peal, and such a peal can be found.
71 blocks to be linked by 35 Q-sets, adding another 105 plains, so giving 129 plains in total.

Only 13 runs with an odd number of bobs: 1 5-bob set, 2 3-bob sets, 10 1-bob sets. Last third of peal is all in pairs (runs of 2 and 6, with one 4).
