Hour meter?

Postby Daddy04 » Wed Oct 19, 2016 12:02 pm

Was there an hr meter kit offered as an option on the 184? I've seen pics of some that appear to have a guage hung above and to the right of the key switch. Was this an hr meter? If not through IH, does anyone know of a kit to add one in a professional looking manor?

I have seen hour meters mounted in various creative places on a 184. Here are some examples:
Side panel by the oil filter (covers the PTO and clutch)

I don't think any were a factory option, but dealerships may have added them.

I added one to the dash by drilling a 2" hole to the right of the ammeter. Got an hour meter from auto parts store that matched the ammeter. Wiring it to the switch was pretty easy. It then looked like it came from the factory that way.
