buy the Gerald Weber book...
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Which one? I have the first one he put out, but I don't remember there being a Twin II schematic in there, but I could be wrong. Is it in the new one that just came out?

Aspen Pittman's "The Tube Amp Book, Volume 3" contains a Twin Reverb II schematic. I don't know if the earlier, or later for that matter, volumes of the book contain the schematic also.  
Hope this helps.

Yes it's in vol #4 as well, but check the book you actually buy cuz some of them are mighty lightly printed

In addition to the Twin II I have a Fender Concert from the same era and, except for having 4 6L6's instead of 2, it has the same circuit configuration as the Twin II. I use it as a test bed for modifications. I did modify the preamp only a while back using the Torres Super Texan design. I liked the souund of the OD channel but was looking for a little more sustain at low volumes. Otherwise I think the mod is certainly worth looking into.
