I also measured the outside of the power transformer to my wall outlet's ground and I get 125VAC. I suspect that this thing is dangerous
Well, *this* is the straw that broke the camel's back.
No point wasting more time with that transformer, even if hum dissappears or voltages are perfect or it does not overheat, NOW IT HAS PROVEN DANGEROUS.

For those of you who like happy endings I replaced both transformers and now the amp is quiet as a mouse and sounds great!

I didn't have to do the output transformer but my buddy uses it for work so it has to be reliable.

Anyway thanks for all the help to everyone that helped me.
