Best Answer

There are a few reason one is that there is a ring warp or damage due to age or hard driving. Carburator or Fuel Injectors are not working or clogged, or a simple reason a spark plug or wire could be warp or ware and damage.

Will an autometer number 19304 tachometer work on a 20hp Kohler twin engine?

A tachometer works by measuring how many time a spark plug fires. If the tachometer is designed to determine the rpm of an 8 cylinder engine it will not show the correct speed of a 2 cylinder engine. If I remember correctly if the tachometer designed for an 8 cylinder is used on a 4 cylinder engine it will show twice the number of actual rpm. So an 8 cylinder tachometer used on a 2 cylinder engine will show 4 times the actual rpm of the 2 cylinder engine. If you check around there are special tachometers designed for 2 cylinder engines.

It can mean one of two things; it is either has a three-cylinder engine, or perhaps a four cylinder engine where one isn't working. A "cylinder" is the part of an internal combustion engine (gas engine) where the power is generated. If you are asking WHY one of the cylinders wouldn't work, several causes are; fouled spark plug, clogged or dead fuel injector, bad or loose spark plug wire, bad ignition coil for that cylinder.
