    All I can tell you is that my tiny-tach is the best hour meter I,ve ever used. I cant address your specific questions concerning models etc. It is very easy to install.

    I have had one on a wave-runner for 3 years and still working great. I just bought two more, one for my Honda HRC 216 and for my Exmark TTHP.
    The people at TT can tell you which one you need. Seem to be very nice people, were very helpful to me..:cool:

    That is the correct part number you need for all of your units.

    Well i hate to be the bad apple,, I have them on 2 of my machines, Both failed, 1 the display malfunctioned and the 2nd just stopped recording, My dealer replaced the 1st one free and I didnt bother him on the 2nd. I thought maybe it was a bad ground but i re checked it and the connection but it doesnt work, All i can say is that they are great when they work and not so great when they dont any help on this would be apreciated if any one has any ideas

    Tiny tachs have a lifespan. Battery will die. They are not great if you plan to use them for recording hours. I put them on mowers for the sole purpose of making sure the RPM's stay correct. The throttle cables do stretch on a regular basis and the rpm's do lower. They need to be adjusted a few times a season to keep them at the 3600-3750 range.

    One thing that will help the tiny tachs to last longer is to put them were they are out of direct sunlight and water.

    Yep, me too. Needed one when I first set the RPMs (3600) Seems pretty accurate. Had it about 3 years, I think their good for 5. I like them. I just reset the hr. meter after maint.
