help with intonation on mk 7

i'm a sophomore in high school and i play on an early 80's mark 7 tenor with either a selmer c* or an otto link 7. I can't hit much above a high c in tune, the hi d, e, and f are a lil better, but the c on a tuner registers at almost a c#.even if i drop my jaw as far as i can drop it, its still super high. i tried my schools yamaha allegro, and it played fine, even my old bundy tenor has better intonation. any body got any suggustions, thanks, oklahomansax

    does the C in the middle of the staff also play sharp unless you lip it down? It could be that a key is out of adjustment, and should be closer to the tone hole. I would check with a repair technician.
