[TenTec] Help needed with Paragon II alignment

I recently got a Paragon II and it was out of adjustment. (Formerly belonged to Federal Highway Dept?)
I set BFO's as well as possible.
Basically has to set fsk bfo's off a bit to get the LSB/USB/and CW Transmit to be on freq. Which they now are. I dont use FSK.
Set reference oscillator frequency.
NOW, the rig works fine on transmit and receive, BUT:
tx/rx are right on freq at 10 mHz.
BELOW 10 mHz I am 10-30 Hz high.
ABOVE 10 mHz I am 10-30 Hz low.
The off set starts at -30 at 160 mtrs, closer as you go up in freq, till 10 mHz, then drops about 10 cycles more per band as you go up to 10 meters.
Obviously I have something buggered up.
The only other thing I adjusted was to set the PBT, which shouldnt affect this, I do not believe.
The rig is rock solid, and doesn't drift, so I would like to get it spot on.
Can anyone help me here?
