Otherwise, the meter bounced back and forth under normal operation.
I have a digital A/F meter that shows me the magic 14.7 number. I got it because I wanted to "see" what an EFIE (02 sensor signal modifier) would do. But, when the EFIE is off, the A/F ratio is pretty much bouncing above and below 14.7, so it's not doing much, just like you said.
