I have a new one from an older cabby and its a little smaller then the stock one on my car. Can it still be used though? Ohh and have you ever heard of a pump that still worked but didn't supply enough system presure to allow the injection to work? thanks a bunch

Re: Does the size of the fuel acumulator matter?? (cabbyracer)

VW switched to a larger fuel accumulator to overcome vaporlock. So you may encounter hot start problems.
Yes you can have a fuel pump that has worn internals that cavitates.
It even happens with used ones that are stashed as spares.
