    How about some sort of timer, so it starts as "normal" then after 3 seconds of running it looks for the oil pressure to maintain ignition?

    I thought the needles had the equivalent of dampers on them to stop them bouncing about all over the place?

    When you turn the ignition on, does the needle shoot up straight away, or move slowly?

    Rover V8 starter issues

    Starter motor spins freely on the bench, but on the car all I get is rapid clicking.

    Engine turns over if you put it in 5th and push the car forward.

    Any ideas?

    It should be fine but make sure every inch of wire has protection on it, even single wires right at the end of the loom, and make sure it won't move backwards and forwards inside the sleeving.
