Hi, My name is***** you for letting me try and assist you with your problem.
It depends on the specs of the tach.
It may be accurate or it may not.
You would need the spec or you could just hook it up and see if it reads right.
It will either be correct or it will be off by 50% or more.
If it's set to show 1 rpm for 1 spark then you need to know if your engine produces only one spark per every two revolutions or just one etc.
There's a lot that goes into it.
