NL25z 4b Pot, bluff jaming turns on blanks

Blinds: $0.10/$0.25 (6 Players) BN: $25.73 (Hero)
SB: $26.33
BB: $19.41
UTG: $25.00
MP: $27.72
CO: $25.63
SB is a reg and capable of having a wider 3b range
Preflop ($0.35) Hero is BN with K T
3 folds, Hero raises to $0.63, SB raises to $2.69, BB folds, Hero raises to $5.75, SB calls $3.06
I have KTo as one of my 4b bluff combos in this spot. Against unknowns I just fold this, but here vs. a reg I think it makes a good case to be used as 4b
Flop ($11.75) 5 8 6
SB checks, Hero bets $3.37, SB calls $3.37
Board is okay, not great. Villain has maybe 3 more combos of sets than we do with 88, but other than that, I would expect to be able to cbet this board reasonably often for this sizing (Normally 25% is a viable size, but Im afraid there are still people taking it for weak and going over the top more often, so I pump it up just a bit)
Turn ($18.49) 5 8 6 8
SB checks, Hero checks
River ($18.49) 5 8 6 8 4
SB checks, Hero checks

So i was looking at it with a solver and gave him the following range to flat after my 4b

99+, AJs+, AK (50% of the time offsuit jammed, while AKs called 100% due to playability)

I tried to find some rule of thumb for what hands like my weakest 4b bluffs I can bluffjam the turn with on blanks (which I would do with QQ-KK as well to get value from his 99-QQ). Maybe you guys can share some of your insights from analysing such spots and if it makes sense.

-- If a second suit comes from the board (such as in this case the 8h), I would jam as a bluff all combos that include a heart in it. Granted the Th blocker wouldnt make much sense with that flatting range, but the idea is that we block any floated AhQh, AhJh, AhKh that could find a call.

-- If a blank with the fourth suit comes in (8d), I would be prone to bluff jam all combos that have the Kd/Td in it (to unblock the other floats with a backdoor flushdraw) and therefore get better SDV to fold.

Obviously im never doing such a play if they are not capable of folding some of their weakest overpairs next to those AKs/AQs/AJs floats, but think its a valuable move. Or you would expect to even get called by regs here with all of their overpairs?
