Question about Sony VO-9800 VCR
I have replaced many an upper drum on u-matic VCRs. They were mainly used in Thompson flight simulation fair ground rides and were on all day every day. The original heads that come with Sony Professional and Broadcast kit last twice the recommended time before suggested replacement. HOWEVER, the replacement heads you obtain from Sony spares last shorter and must be made of a softer compound.

Nope it's in the user menu and you have to have video going into the deck to read it on the monitor video out put. Head hours are the time the tape actually is in contact with the drum and the most accutate easy indication of drum ware. 3/4 Umatics don't eat heads as a rule. I think I only replaced 1 out of hundred for thousands and thousands decks. Brokers love head or durm hours tipically it's T2 on the menu.
