OEM Hour meter Install

    I picked up a hour meter for my great dane. Its the same round one found on deeres.

    It has 2 wires. A neg and a Pos. I was going to hook it directly to the battery till I realized it would always run. So what is the proper way? I'm thinking it has to be wired into the ignition.
