Two questions:  Which Hi Lo counter is used, and (since I always forget and I'm feeling too lazy to look it up myself) which dollar signs were on the Big Wheel?

The Hi Lo Counter was the 2nd one (white colored) used throughout the 80's

Also the dollar signs on the wheel were still the small pink ones at this point instead of gold.
