    Only if it is mechanical. On my Kubota lawn tractor, it runs whoever the ignition is on.

    To calibrate for hours, you would need an RPM input into the hour meter. If the meter were built into the tach, maybe they would have an engine speed correction. Not sure why one would bother.

    I have seen electric meters hooked up to oil pressure switches so they don't move unless the engine is running.

    Digital hour meter on a 1999 Deere 4300. It's built into the tach. On older tractors we've had with mechanical hour meters it was RPM dependent but I doubt it is on this. I'll have to check it against my watch.
    Regardless I was at PTO speed the whole time.
