That's the reason for the wire across the oil caps.
The wire across the meter terminals is to provide some magnetic damping of
the movement - kind of like when you short out a generator it becomes harder
to turn. The shorted terminals makes the movement bounce around less during
shipping and handling, and less likely to be damaged.
