[DML] Re: Flushing Fuel lines

I think what you did was fine - I do essentially the same process. 

A handy way to close the loop for flushing the lines is to use the 
old fuel pump along with that double banjo screw from the frequency 
valve connection. Put it thru the feed and return connectors with the 
right washers, thread it into the old pump, and voila - you have 
closed the loop so that you can recycle the cleaning fluid/fuel 
around the fuel injection system. Fuel cannot to backwards thru the 
pump so it won't leak. It looks a bit strange since the pump just 
lays on top of the fuel distributor. 

Also - Acetone is the perfect solvent for cleaning out the tank.
