Default Can Califone PA OPT's be used to build a tube amp

I have an old Califone PA Model 35 with a nice looking OPT and wanted to confirm if it could be used to build a tube amp? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm picking it outputs 70 or 100v line level and is driven by MOSFETS, it that correct?

Thanks for the reply. I am a total noob and haven't gotten that far as of yet. I was first trying to confirm if a PA amp OPT could be used as a tube amp OPT and whether I could use the power transformer as well.

Short answer - No.

Voltages involved are quite different.
