[DML] Re: Fuel Distributor ect


i would not really lean the fuel distributor, mine was 12 years 
standing and ok.
at the most only carefully remove the plunger and soak in acetone.

the bolts with the holes are called banjo bolts, just replace with 
specialTauto may want the old ones for refurb

do not use standard fuel hoses. system is injection and runs in 
excess of 65 lb (car tyre presure about 26 so gives an idea)
you do not want a burst and petrol spraying at that pressure.
Really you need to buy the propper thing (say stainless from 
don't skimp on this!

again i replaced my tank, pump, filter
ran the fuel return line into a canister (you don't want old gunk 
back in the clean tank.
expect the accumulator to be faulty (a pig to replace)

put six temporary pipes onto fuel distributor and into six glass 
jars and ran fuel pump. petrol came out black for first few seconds.

make sure you do any thing safely with a fire extuinguisher in hand!.

by the way the tank needs more than a wipe down, needs to have 
acetone soaking inside and remove all gunk.

check all the connections to the coil as these are common to corrode 
(mine had and car would not run more than 30 seconds)
one cleaned...fine
