 that did the trick I can tune it with a negative voltage, minus 13  gives 
me plus 2 Hz but this unit came out of a FTS 5000 and it had a positive  
tuning voltage.

That's a suspicious-sounding voltage.  Are you  sure you're not
forward-biasing the varicap?  Maybe some of these  OCXOs were specified for
use with negative EFC voltage. 

If so, then  driving the diode with a negative voltage should raise the
operating  frequency (which is what you want.)
