Question Inductive tach/hour meter

I'm looking at the descriptions and all of them say they work on engines up to 2 cylinders. My new engine is a 4 cylinder, 4-stroke. I really only need it for the hours, not so much the tach. So I imagine any of these will work for the hours as long as it is sensing a spark?

I don't know which brand/model you're looking at but the Hardline we sell is for 1 or 2 cylinders, that's referencing the Tach model (HR-8061), it's designed for things like generators. If you hook it up to a 4 cylinder motor, not sure if the tach would be accurate or not. The hour meter model (HR-8063) doesn't mater with the no. of cylinders.
