    Can I put an hourmeter(and make it work) on my TT since it has no battery/charging system?

    It was easier enough with the larger one, I just found the hot wire with the key switch on and wired it to that and grounded the other side.

    Now sure how I can do it with this one, or even if it's possible.

    Thanks.

    You can purchase an hour meter than simply "wraps" around the spark plug wire. It only counts hours when the mower is running. While the mower is running, it displays RPS, when mower is off it displayes hours. Heres the link...

    Yep, and they have their own internal power supply that is rated for longer than the mower will live.
