7363 is orthochromatic and is process until completion, so you can't *really* overprocess it. It is extremely forgiving in terms of time and temperature. I'd recommend processing under a safelight so you can watch the process. Using a paper developer such as Dektol will afford you a wider range of tones/greys over film developers and is a great way to play with the stock. D-19 is a high-contrast developer and will typically give you black or white with little in between. Usually I process short strands (40'/12m or less) of 7363 in trays or buckets with paper developer and a safelight until it looks "done." Guessing around 5-6 minutes at 68F/20C. I've honestly never checked the time but have had a lot of success with this method.

Would anyone be willing to share some guidelines processing times for 7363 processed to neg in Dektol?
How would you describe the difference in look between '63 developed in D-19 compared to Dektol?
Thanks so much for your help.
