[DML] Re: Fuel Accumulator - Hot start fixed - Kinda

Sounds like your fuel distributor isn't holding lower end pressure, 
check to see if your fuel adjuster O ring on right lower side of FD 
with Nut on it, I'll bet it's broken, rotted out or gone. this would 
cause your fuel to go back to your tank instead of holding the 
pressure causeing turn over but no start.
