Default Tach and Trim Gauge Problems

My trim indicator gauge for my 1993 200 Merc is constantly in the UP position. Also, I believe my TACH is not working properly.(reading higher RPM's) Is there an easy way of checking these units out?

Trim gauges never seem to work very long. It's not ussually the guage, ussually the rusted out sensor sitting in the water.

Tach problems are ussually a sign of a bad alternator and/or regulator.
