Hubodometer; $55.00, attached to front wheel on trucks. Mostly used on trucks to determine how many miles they have driven. appears to be working well. Please include $9.15 shipping.
Would be an excellent conversation item at a car show or where a bunch of Ts are parked. You would be unique.

Does it just screw on; replacing a hub cap?
Terry I don't know for sure how it is mounted. I will try and post a couple of pictures of the back. My guess and its strictly a guess is that yu drill a hole in the center of a hub cap and mount it that way. I get steel hubcaps with no embossing at some of the estate buy outs, that I think would work real good. I find these meters at estates every once in awhile. They always seem to work good when turned.
Please correct me if I'm wrong here but my understanding is that Engler Instruments didn't start making these until early 1950's????
Most common installation is by mounting a bracket between two points, usually hub bolts. With a hole in the center of the bracket, directly in line with the axle, this Hubodometer is mounted with a nut and lock washer.
As the wheel turns the Hubodometer housing rotates but the inside is weighted to remain up right and thus counts the revolutions of the wheel converting that into miles.
