I need the right equipment that will get the job done. Any suggestions on what kind and where to get it most appreciated.

A meter with a tach can be gotten at Harbor Freight. That, and ascrew driver, will get the job done.

I've got an old tach/dwell/volt meter that I used to use for tune ups but it's not in increments of 50 so I'll check out the local Harbor Freight. Thanks Dennis.

I went down to Harbor Freight. I found two items that I thought might be what I need. One was a Cen-Tech Multimeter #95670 and the other was a Digital Contact Tachometer #66400. They had an optical Cen-Tech Tach too. I asked the guy that worked there but he didn't seem to know. The Multimeter was on sale for only $29.00. The Multimeter stated it would measure as a tach on the box. I'll do some research to try to figure out what will work but I could use some input.
