Engine Hour Meter

Went to an auction and I bought six gasoline powered centrifugal water pumps complete with suction hoses, debris screens and discharge hoses. In checking them out before I resell them I found that one of them has an Engine Hour Meter. It read 327.8 before one hour of pumping and 328.2 after. How does .4 equal one hour, or is it broke?

PS My hilo has a meter just like it, and it doesn't read true hours either. I'll use it all day 7 or 8 hrs and it only moves a couple of tenths. Sounds broke?

Yup...sounds like they're broken.
