Question Using an output tranny from a stereo for a single-ended amplifier ?

Hey everyone...once again I want to thank you all for coddling this newbie.
Next ? ...I have a chassis from an old Magnavox console stereoand I was wondering if I can use one of the output trannies in a single-ended amp ? It seems logical to me since it was being driven by a single EL84 into a single speaker, that as long as I match primary and secondary impedance, it should work. Yes/no ??
Also, the PT I am using has a 6V rectifier tap...the amp it is in has a 6X4 rectifier..can I use a 6X5 rectifier with it ? Only because I have some 6X5s around and lots of octal sockets....thx again !!!

Yes.

Yes again since the filament current requirements are the same, 0.6A. BTW, the tube voltage drop is also the same, not that it matters so much. (22V at 70mA)
