Re: [DML] Fuel Accumulator Replacement - Stuck


if youv'e dropped the accumulator through the whole youve done the 
hard bit. i then removed the small return feed so the unit would 
lower better.

if i  remember right, i think i use two wrenches, one on the nut and 
one on the accumulator, postion them so the is a small inch gap at 
the handle end and then 'crush' the two handles together..this way 
you can get a huge amount of torque
i also use this method to tighten (but not as much as you don't want 
to over tighten).
you can't get enough torque holding the accumulator by in your hand 
(if this is what you have done)

i think it is normal for the rubber to perish on the fuel pipes, you 
will find the same at the petrol pump end if they are original.

but you should not be getting that much petrol out of this as the 
pump is not running and there should really be little/no pressyre 
after that amount of time.
the petrol would need to run upwards through the feed pipes, unless 
it its working as a syphon, is your check vale on the pump ok?
this needs sorting as in an emergency you don't want petrol to be 
able to escape from the tank.
