You might try to look them up on the internet, I had one reconditioned by them some years back. They are under Steward Warner corp, Hobbs division as I recall. They might still be around. Your W-30 must have an electric system, as the Hobbs proof meter requires electric to work. Never have seen one on a W-30 here as they are all hand crank tractors. I do know that the meter was heavily advertised in the farm magazines back in the day as a add on for tractors. The ones on the Fords and Massey's here were hooked up with a oil pressure switch to turn on the current to the meter, that way it only activates when the engine is running. Those meters are basically an electric clock works mechanism.

Thank you for your input . Can any one tell me why the hourmeter would be fitted to a tractor with no power source?

I believe there are mechanical ones through the years, they run off the governor gear through a hole in the side of the governor casting. I have one right now that I removed from a w-6, it was mechanical with a door over the window.

John, a good picture of the thing would really help identify the one you have. As stated above there may well be different units. The Hobbs I am familiar with are electric powered, but you may well have something different.
