Have you tried tapping the instrument (gently) to see if it's sensitive to vibration. I think it would have to be very touchy to get these results from the mere vibration of turning a knob but it just seems so general that it's possible. While it could be the CRT it doesn't look like it to me so don't slash your wrists just yet. I've never worked on one of these but is it possible to measure the deflection voltage going to the tube. You should be able to see it jumping all over the place in sympathy with the trace movement.
At least you've won weird fault of the month award.

PS can someone advise if this model overheats if operated with the covers off and needs a desk fan blowing into it while working on it?

I have never seen anything like that.  You are able to put the trace nearly anywhere on the screen but it is usually right of center.  The trace that shows in the video looks like the cursor from the readout board.

The fact that you can position the trace right or left, mostly right, seems to say the U800 is working (but not necessarily right).  I am bewildered but will think about it and post back.

Perhaps someone with more experience on these will be better help to you.

Values on those pins is fine , about R352 levels from -4.97v to +4.97v
and R351 from 0v to +4.98v , looking the schematic seems to be ok ,
i have upload a new video with more details of scope rotating pots

this the video

regarding corrosions ..the scope is very clean there no traces
of that i have changed all electrolitics but they was almost
fine maybe the c1022 with broken terminal it was defective
or while assembled too much forced or manipulated then with age
