The service manual says that the reference frequency, measured on pin 1 of
J4003, should be 10.48576 MHz +/-5Hz. 

This is set with trimmer TC4001 (or TCXO-2 trimmer if that board is
installed). Reference to where this board is located can be found in the
FT990 user manual, last page. 

Could be that this reference fq is off as the error is evident on both on
cw and ssb.
