From the website:

http://www.tinytach.com/tinytach/index.php

Ya'll no longer have a choice.
They're only offering a single recreational model for outboards
and one for commercial usage.

Currently available for both GAS and DIESEL engines, we are proud to announce the newest generation TINY-TACH™ for gas engines….the TT2A. No longer will you have to decide between different models to select the correct one for your engine application. The versatile new TT2A gives you the ability to adjust the tach to the firing sequence of your engine’s cylinder(s). Buy just 1 – and use it on a wide variety of engines. With half-second update time the TT2A does it better and does it faster.

Hey guys I bought one last fall for my 02 merc 20hp. Customer service was great and easy to order from them over the phone. easy to follow directions and are also easy to install about twenty minutes for a basic velcro transom install. and they work beautifully.

So EASY a caveman could do it ;D

update your adobe reader   ;)

2 stroke outboards require 1 spark per cylinder on each revolution
and because you wrap the sensor wire around a single plug wire
I'm going to say 1 spark per revolution is the setting you need.

Good theory, and according to Tiny Tach you are correct because only one wire is wrapped!

Thanks for finding that chart!!

Did you try a fourth wrap on the wire? Instructions said something about adding wraps for stronger signal.
yep tried that already, whats weird is that the top spark plug wire was disconnected and she seemed like she was working right, motor ran too  :-? thought i had it all buttoned up so i went back in to pour another glass of  sweet tea in celebration of another successful install on the boat, i walk back out and see the wires disconnected   [smiley=1-smack-myself.gif] now i'm back to square one  [smiley=cloud.gif]
