Your rx is likely picking up the electrical noise from your starter and/or glow igniter. As long as the twitching is only evident while starting you'll be fine.

Might not be a bad idea to do an engine-running range test, though.

While this may not be normal, it is common.
I would not worry.

Does it only happen on a freshly charged battery? If so, I get that too. It goes away pretty quick.

6V's fresh off a charge jitter a bit...

I say you have metal on metal somewhere- Is this just during start-up?

Hey Hawker: Hows the family? Hope all is well
