MG TD TF 1500 - Ammeter safety

voltmetertime that I had a safety issue with car electrics was when a cable to the ammeter shorted against the ammeter body. Smoke and a quick glance under the dash saw the temp gauge capillary glowing red! I immediately cut the power and found the problem. Amazingly the temp gauge still worked and no real damage was done. It was some time ago and I certainly learned something.
I was reminded of all this when I recently rebuilt the TF
