Re: Accumulator a necessity?



well if you bypass it tell us how you do it and how things work out. :-) does it also help maintain some even pressure with the engine running also? hmmm I will have to check on that.

also?
way,
Actually, the accumulator can be bypassed. As it is a sort of pressure tank for the system, you'll find it'll take a bit more cranking at startup without it. Once the fuel pump has the system up to pressure the accumulator is not needed. Cheers!
