Meter Registers
Part 8:  COUNTER WINDOW.  This counter advances once each time you produce a meter tape.  This counter cannot be reset manually. Part   9: METER   MANUFACTURER. The manufacturer’s  logo  and  name  are  engraved  on  the meter. Part  10:   SERIAL  NUMBER.   The  meter  head  serial number  is  also  engraved  on  the  meter  and  is  usually located  above  the  high  denomination  button. Each meter  head  has  its  own  unique  number.   Each  time  a meter tape is produced, this serial number is printed on the tape indicating which meter produced it. The following are parts of the meter base: Part  1: TAPE  AND  INKER  COMPARTMENT COVER.  This cover protects the ink rollers and meter tape from being damaged.   By grasping the upper-left portion of the machine and pulling it out and to the left, both the tape and inker compartments are exposed. Part  2:   INKER.   The  inker  assembly  consists  of  two absorbent rollers that are mounted on a metal bracket. The larger of these rollers is saturated when new, with enough  ink  to  produce  approximately  15,000  tape stamps. Part 3:  WATER CONTAINER.  This container is used to  moisten  tapes  when  the  deflector  switch  is  in  the “WET” position. Part 4:  CUSTOMER’S LOCK.  This is a cylinder lock used for locking the meter on the machine and to lock the machine against operation.  To place the machine on the “lock” position, shift the operating lever (Part 5) to the center position between OPERATE and REMOVE, then turn the key clockwise one-half turn and remove the key. Part 5:  OPERATING LEVER.  This lever can be set at one  of  three  positions,  REMOVE  (forward  position), LOCK (center position) or OPERATE (rear position). The operating lever engages the meter to the machine when it is moved to the extreme rear position. This lever must be moved fully forward when you wish to install or remove the meter or when you wish to engage the meter when it has been secured. 8-17 PCf0808 Figure 8-8.    An example of a meter head engaged to the meter base.
