Re: weird reverb problem!
The power transformer will induce a hum in the output coil if the tank is installed backwards.  
Looking from the rear of the amp make sure that the reverb tank input is to the left side, near the power transformer & power tubes and that the output is to the right - the side with the preamp tubes.  
If that doesn't help and you are sure that you cables aree shielded & connections are solid, try a new tank or one that works from another Fender tube amp.
