[DML] Re: TESTING THE FUEL ACCUMULATOR



The accumulator does not have a bypass.  That extra hose is to return 
fuel if the rubber diaphragm leaks or is ruptured.

Your dealing with a very small volume of air in your test.  You will 
need to use pipe sealer or Teflon tape on your connections to get 
reliable results.  If these are done you should get days, weeks or 
longer before you see any drop in pressure.
