Quote from: daantjie on 06 October 2023, 09:02 PMHonestly looking at that horror show of a fuel delivery package I would personally replace everything back there. For sure that does not look like a OE Bosch pump.That filter looks ancient too, so might have a clogged filter/tank situation going on.

These are known trouble spots on these cars and those hoses will be brittle and leak over time, especially if they're original to the car.The accumulator I would leave if you don't have a hot start problem. That's a classic tell of a tits up accumulator. They are pricey unfortunately.The main feed line out of the tank screws into the in tank strainer. I would also replace the strainer while you're at it. They are cheap and readily available.I know folks don't like the shotgun approach to fixes but in my opinion when it comes to safety and fuel delivery I don't bugger around.
