is it ok to use eq pedal in fx loop as a master volume (to push tubes harder) if there's none?

For the best sound you should put the EQ in the effects loop so it EQs the pre-amp, otherwise you're only EQing the guitar signal which is pretty weak (unless you put it after another pedal in the front chain then it will EQ those pedals as well). As far as pushing the tubes, it will have that effect in either the front or the effects loop---don't think that will matter much where it goes---volume is volume.

the only place i use a eq is in the effects loop, but its mostly for eqing my amp after the preamp not for boosting

uf, i wrote it the wrong way

cranked amp -> eq for shaping tone and lower volume in fx loop

so it acts like an attenuator

That will only work your Preamplifier tubes, Not your Poweramplifier tubes.
It won't be an Attentuator but I will give you Preamp saturation.

i see now, it seems i need real attenuator
