The Arabic text given on your linked site is:

ليأتين على الناس زمان لا ينفع فيه إلا الدينار و الدرهم

The hadith number will vary with the publisher, and it is possible that some publications are not available online at all. It may be easier to refer to it through chapter names: This hadith is from the sub-musnad مسند الشاميين in the section of the sahabi المقدام بن معدي كرب, near the end of that section.

It is listed under number 16867 on islamweb.

It is number 17201 in these editions from Darussalam, Al-Resalah and others.

It is number 17135 in this edition from Darul Hadith Cairo.

It is number 17664 in this edition from Dar Al-Kotob Al-Ilmiyah.
