If its anything like the pump on my 72 Delta, it'll be the circuit board at fault. A temporary solution is to wire the main connector straight to the pump itself.

Dashboard clock to fit 72 Delta 88

As the title suggests. I'm after a clock to fit in the dash on my 72 Delta 88.
Not too fussed if its not the exact one for that year and model, just so long as it fits correctly in the cutout. :)
