tach/hour meter - perkins prima m50

Noticed after some time my hour meter for my perkins prima m50 isn't working. It's a perkins VDO panel circle 1990 and the hour meter is combined with the tach. The tach works perfectly fine though, so it's getting power.

I'm curious does anyone has a recommendation for 3rd part tach/hour meter for the m50 and if so, is it possible to remove one and put the other in the same panel typically or would I be better off finding a new mounting spot?

Re: tach/hour meter - perkins prima m50

A little experience on this subject.

The tach is a special fit into the instrument cluster. A quarter turn with lugs locks into the plastic. It is an odd size.

Nicholson Speedometer repaired mine. They are on North Carolina ask for Jacob.

Cost was about 70.00

You won’t find a tach that fits the hole

I have the oem drawing for the tack
