Tacho's

I'd like to avoid fitting a tachometer for my Mercury 60hp outboard (on a budget!) Is there such a thing as a portable plug in one - that perhaps could be borrowed from an engineer?? I only want to make sure I have the right prop fitted!

Yes there is such a thing, it clips onto one of the HT leads going to a spark plug.

You could probably buy one from a car spares shop, or maybe borrow one from a friendly engineer.

Hi there
If you engine is a 2 stroke make sure the tacho works with them or your RPM will read double the actual value.
