My Hardline tach was very nervous until I wrapped the portion of the wire under the cover with aluminum foil. Must have been picking up "electrical noise".

I wonder how those tachs would work if both plug wires were intentionally wrapped and then the tach set on 'two sparks' per revolution.

One spark per revolution. You also might be picking up interference from the other spark plug wire.

I'm fooling with the settings on an off brand tiny tach.

So the question is...

How many sparks per revolution on a 40 hp Evinrude?

This tach give me three options.
2 sparks per revolution
1 spark per revolution
1 spark per two revolutions

The readings I was getting didn't seem right, 2500 rmp at full throttle doing 25 mph
The manual says peak horse power at 4500 rpm.

It sounds like we have the making of a big summer in the GLRC!

Karim's getting his hotrod all worked out, looks like I am finally over the hump and will be running regularly, Marc has one hell-of-a ride that we all can attempt to keep up with and we are are all within sight of the Rivet King and his aqua castle (aka SGower)! Let us not forget our court jester from the north.... Neil, Ontario is part of the GLRC as well! Take care of them thistles, I picture myself setting a tent in the back 40 this upcoming year, whether you are inviting me, or not!

Can't wait til spring breaks and we are hitting the water.

Good to here you were able to huff on some two cycle smoke! Putting her away knowing that next summer is going to be a blast is a good way to end the season! Good job....

Got her out today for "test run". Woo Woo!

Started right up! Ran decent, a bit of adjustment to do on the low speed needle, but I'm happy as a clam.
