The rolled pin that connects the tilt rod on my Mercury came out causing the rod that holds the motor to the bracket to shift starboard. After having a non-working gauge for many years I am glad that I got a wild hair one day to fix the sender. I had it fixed once under warranty within a year of buying new. When the second sender broke I gave up. I really have no use for a trim gauge any way and forget to even look at it.
