how many incoming links from PR5 sites would help boost my site from a PR5 to a PR 6? Does anyone else find it difficult finding sites that are PR7 or 8 to request links from?

I have the notion that its nothing more than a simple log scale, so if it log 6.2 you need 6 or 7 PR6 sites to link to you. But I have no proof its linear.

Too many other factors at play to offer a definitive answer.

You also need to consider...

  • Is it a "high" PR5 or a "low" PR5? (PR resolution on the toolbar doesn't reflect the "true" PR of any given page)

  • How many other outbound links are there on the PR5 page? (The PR that is passed on is divided by the number of links on the page)

  • Are the links from different domains? (differing opinions on this point)

  • Is the link format indexed? (e.g. javascript)

  • Is the link going to be spidered by Googlebot? (It may not be if it's buried below the 101k point on a large page)

    As mentioned before, the answer depends on several parameters.
    However, an rough estimate would be 10*(average number of outgoing links on the PR5 sites).

    I'll be really general here - this won't apply to everyone, but's it's generally not too far off the mark

    PR6 - 50
    PR7 - 1000

    From this thread...

    what does it take?
    pr3 to pr4?

    ...two posts by ciml, with my comment in brackets:

    To get PR4 [from PR3] you need about "n" links from PR4 pages, or about "n x n" links from PR3 pages, or about 1 link from a PR5 page. I say about, because the number of links on the linking page make a difference, as does whether the linking page is a at the top or bottom of it's position in the Toolbar.

    People disagree over whether "n" is about 6 or 10.

    And, in answer to a question abt 3 PR6 links...

    I'd expect roughly PR5 from three links from PR6 pages.

    If the same rules apply going from PR5 to PR6, this suggests "n x n" PR5 links, or somewhere between 36 and 100... consistent with what Pegasus says.
