Transformer selection

Transformer selection
Is it reasonable to assume that I could use a vertical power transformer from an old Valco style guitar amp originally designed for 6973 output tubes with a two 6V6 style amp?  
I was thinking of trying my first homebrew 5E3 using the 6973 transformer in conjunction with a New Sensor Deluxe Reverb replacement output transformer. Also would I need a choke as well using the above transformers?  
I wanted to use a vertical power transformer so I didn't have to cut a big hole in the chassis for a horizontal mounted one.
