[DML] Re: TESTING THE FUEL ACCUMULATOR



I tend to agree. The factory spec of one hour(?) is way to low, that 
will find a profoundly bad one (maybe that's all they were dealing 
with in 1981). When we build up a new fuel system on a car and retest 
it, it will hold pressure overnight. I've seen them hold as much as 
20 pounds over a weekend. 

I see quite a few that will hold for an hour or two and then go to 
zero, in all likelihood those should be replaced now unless something 
else is leaking too.
