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.

A digital tachometer measures the speed of objects. They measure the rotations of an engine shaft in a car and then record the number of revolutions per minute on a dial.

You will need to tell us the model number and type for that info. -Kohler makes MANY engines,and at least 3 of 20 hp.
