Build 3X front and rear and keep the old pattern. Even with washers, you may have reliability problems if you change the lacing pattern, because of elongation of the spoke holes in the hub flange.
I built a radially spoked front wheel in the early 1970s, long before they became fashionable, and I say, "never again"!
