Re: switching from magnetos to electronic ignition?

Yeah I've noticed that my tach is off compared to the pacemaker panel by best I can tell sitting on side of the boat strapped down on the trailer it's 100rpm higher than the mechanical tach if not more.. I'm guessing cause it's reading right at the flywheel
