[DML] Re: Fuel accumulator question

Don't clamp the OEM pressure line - they will crack internally. 

It won't spill much. It doesn't seem to siphon out the tank probably due to the checkvalve on the pump and the fact that you are working above the level of the return line in the tank.

Don't take the fitting apart at the frame. Just cut the hose off and replace, most vendors are now supplying rubber hoses with clamps. If you are not replacing the hoses (but you should) there is no reason to take the ones off at the frame end.

When replacing it are there checkvalves and such that limit the amount of spillage form the tank or will the amount of spillage have to be controlled by speedy clamping and such of the removed lines? Of the 3 lines to the accumulator, which are the ones (if any) that have the primary spillage problem?
