Would it be safe to put KT120s (replacing the KT88s) in a Holden 200 amp?
I know that is an old Aussie or Kiwi amp and there are some good experts around TB here who will answer your query. A specialist amp designer and builder called @agedhorse may be able to help you here.
If you have no luck try the OzBassForum. Click the link below. They may know more about this amp.

I bumped up the Holden Club thread. I couldn't remember how to link threads sorry.
the first question is, why?
Wrong valves is less safe than right valves.
I believe foal30 was trying to link you to this club.
I too would like to know why the OP would want to do this. What is he hoping to gain over what the KT88’s deliver?
BTW @will o the wasp welcome to TalkBass.
Apparently the KT120 has a warmer bass sound and more headroom.It sounded a good idea for my 5 string.But decided against it after talking to a few technically minded guys.I might try,experiment. with the tone controls.
It also has a higher heater current draw stressing the power transformer.
The bottles are bigger and taller.
Don't know if spacing allows it.
But if they did. Need bias.
I don't see point but they are massive bottles.
Could do more. But would perform very much the same in the amp. Same transformers same current same voltage
