If the original electrolytics have not been replaced -- or at least checked! -- I would not feel safe running this set for prolonged periods.

Forget alignment for the moment. TVs don't un-align themselves by sitting around. Install a full set of tube shields and see if they help.

The previous owner was a TV repairman. I was told he would fix the set if anything was acting up with it. He never did a full restoration, he just kept the set alive. I can see some wax caps that are still on the boards and in other places visible on the top side of the chassis.
