The main capacitors should always be as close as possible to where they are "functioning". For example the main HV cap should be at the feed to the output transformer etc. with its OV to where the output tube cathode(s) return.

Thus while you can have some smaller caps on the Power Supply Chassis the main caps for the HV, Bias Supplies etc should be on the amp chassis.
