Okay, I agree you a 100% on what you said concerning the extra hose (small
end of the accumulator).  I found a Bosch web site and found that the small
end is actually supposed to be vented to the atmosphere, not attached to a
return fuel line.  To be sure, I cut one of the bad ones I had in half.  To
actually see what was inside was very interesting.  (pictures available for
anyone who wants to see the parts)
Now, this raises another question:  If the small end is supposed to be
vented to the atmosphere, are we not damaging the bladder inside the
accumulator by having fuel present on both sides (the return line from the
engine is just a simple "T" fitting and it is attached directly to the small
end, with no way to block off unwanted fuel).
I fully understand that if the bladder fails, you don't want to pee fuel all
over the underside of the car, but shouldn't that excess fuel go somewhere
besides an open fuel line, which is connected to a semi-pressurized fuel
