They can go faulty Arthur, what is happening ?

ruud is perhaps a good man to ask about getting a new one, he is very helpful.

It won't be the accumulator.

It's only used on old fuel injection systems (CIS) and is for stabilising the fuel pressure delivery

Did you ever check the filter in the fuel tank Arthur ? If not do so, there could be a load of anything stuck to and in it.

You can bypass the relay using a wire in two of the connections
Just to make it work incase it's not the fuel pump
