I played through it for a a few minutes, of course, and the reverb was definitely on and turned up, but not audible. I tapped the tank and could hear the springs rattling around through the speaker, so the output side (black cable in Fig. 2) was good. I swapped the cable for some good ones and it still didn't work.

I tested again, and it worked fine. I put everything back together and took my tools down to the workshop, which sure beat having to lug this beast.
