Yamaha Idle speed adjustment

Hello All

I think my outboard idle speed is slightly to low and the outboard sounds like it almost going to stall.

The previous owner had installed the wrong model of plugs, after installing the correct plugs the outboard idle speed sound as if its going to stall.

What type of tachometer do i need to buy to check this?

Just to add the engine is a 2 stroke 8hp 2002 model.

Thanks

You should be able to do it simply by ear. Timing should be correct if red paint is still intact on screws. Just adjust the idle screw. If you do want use a tachometer, buy one of the cheap digital ones on eBay where you wrap the wire round the plug lead .
