That's what I thought too, bad accumulator. Replaced it, no improvement, so now I have a good, used, spare accumulator.

I checked with CIS-Jetronic and they recommended sprinkling baby powder at the fuel distributor's mid-line and below it but above the Air control box to find leaks. Problem is, can't gain access to 2 of the 3 screws as they're directly below fuel lines. I do think I'm losing fuel past the plunger. Don't believe there are O-rings around it.

I have 2 fuel distributors. The first one is the only one I've completely disassembled, sealed with an aluminum foil homemade gasket, put it into use, no leaks at the mid-line but had fuel delivery problems. I think the slits in the barrel are deformed. So I removed/replaced with this distributor and after a year in use, am losing fuel from it overnight. It does fill back up but takes 1/2 mile of driving for that to happen.

One of the two distributors needs to be examined closely for clearance issues with the plunger while the other keeps us driving.
