MG TD TF 1500 - Amp Meter Flicker

Don't know how else to say it, but is it normal for the amp meter to flicker at the tune of the fuel pump? My amp meter needle constantly jumps back and forth when the fuel pump is running, again, is this normal? PJ

Mine does and for me it indicates the pump is still working.

It may be caused by my old pump with worn points, merrily arcing away so I'm not sure if the flicker is meant to be.

The flicker is perfectly normal. It jumps when the points on the pump close.Mine has ben flickering like that since 1974.

Well isn't that something. A fuel pump operation indicator. Wonder why they didn't incorporate that on the later models? (Grin). PJ

Think we once had a thread where folks measured the time between flickers at idle. Bud
