Evinrude Tacho gauge

The Gauge for my evinrude is on 3300 RPM before I start the engine ?, is there anyway to reset it too Zero ?
All the warning lights work when you switch on the ignition, its just seems to be the tacho out of sync ??
Thanks



its connected to a E50PL4ss outboard

Does it go back to zero when you turn the ignition to the on position ?

Stick a meter on the back and check it has power

Oops, just re-read your post, and it obviously has power, so I'd plump for a duff gauge!

There is a small screw accessible from the back.
It is NOT a zero adjust screw, so don't try that. Been there, done that.
I think it adjusts somewhere in the middle of the range. I can't remember exactly.

The armature on the needle has seized. Had this on an old Honda gauge not a lot you can do unfortunately.

Strategically placed drop or two of penetrating oil, perhaps?

I had sort of gathered this but needed to be assured by the rest of you that it was beyond hope !

Sorry, cant see the link but might be worth a peruse for other ideas ( & maybe a second hand rev gauge !)

Thanks
