  • I often thought it would be nice to have an hour meter but didn't know how to do it. Thanks for the Info.

  • I mount hour meters so they are switched on by an oil pressure switch. This is a Hobbs part and only activates the hour meter when the engine is running

  • another way which we do at work is to plumb a simple pressure switch avail at a local auto parts store into an oil pressure port, then run a power wire through this switch to the meter, therefore when the engine is running the oil pressure closes the switch and powers the meter. the switch can also be on the ground side of the meter if its a two pole meter.
