Faria tach connected to alternator, irregular readings, needle bounces or does not leave zero, same readings on upper and lower tachs, Ford Leman engine, wiring connections are tight

Have you Alt tested for a bad diode. They still put out, but have an irregular pattern and lower voltages. That would bounce your tack all over the place.

maybe try replacing the fuel filter. it is possible that it has sediment in it and needs to either be cleaned or replaced (depending on the way it works)
these marine engines are difficult to work on, you may consider taking it to an actual shop to get it fixed

Starboard needle keeps erratic behavior, engine does not lose rpm nothing seems abnormal, usual see this when gas has water but port engine runs fine from same tank and needle steady

My thought is this may be electrical in nature. I would test with an external guage. If your engines have points, make certain they are in good condition. I suggest considering upgrading ignition to electronic, but that has nothing to do with this event, necessarily. Points are just always out, slightly.

Another test, before anything, may be to reverse the inputs on the Floscan and see if the problem moves or stays. If the problem moves, the starboard ignition is suspect. If the problem does not move, the Floscan may need repair. Make sure that you have tight and clean connections and good grounds.
