Hi Cat,
used something similar a while back, the number rings a bell, I think it was Bohler/Fox rods.
They need a good pre-heat on the parent metal, around the 200 degree C mark.
Use electrode positive and run out a 3.2mm around the 120amp mark. Keep a close arc.
Hope this helps.

But as always go by your W.P.S. mate.

9CrMoV.....are pretty specialised for welding P91 steel, usually in Power Stations. There will be a very well defined welding procedure to follow. The WP will give you the amps. The arc length should be short and consistent.
