Scirocco Update

Fuel accumulator and the in-and-out lines.  Ugh.

Little progress, I suppose, except that the worst was confirmed.  After days/weeks of soaking in WD-40, and gentle pressure with wrenches, the fuel accumulator was broken/hacksawed free.  Including the flare nut on the steel line going to the engine.  So the entire line may need replacement.

Next: clean the gas tank in the car, via the top (fuel gauge sending unit) and bottom (filler neck) holes. Next after that: a run to to the Detroit VW Guru's parts store.  Hang in there, Hotshoe...  It'll be sweet when it's running again.
