[DML] Testing the fuel accumulator

Hello all :)
  I'm having the typical hot restart problem after my D sits for about 
45 minutes after being brought to operating temp.  I suspect that after 
25 years my accumulator has thrown in the towel.  
  Here's what I did to see if the accumulator was still working;
I hooked up my pressure gauge to check the operating pressure, then I 
put the vent line from my pressure gauge into a container and vented 
immediately after shutting off the engine.  I only got about a 
tablespoon of fuel.  I would think that the accumulator should store 
more than that if it was working.  I've also checked to make sure that 
the system can hold pressure, no bleed down through the pump or 
  Can anyone see any problems with my diagnosis?
