Idling issue - '89 SE

Was watching an American car restorer on youtube rescue an Esprit from water damage and/or been left out in the elements for years.  He referred to a fuel accumulator that apparently holds fuel pressure for about 24 hrs to thwart vapour locking.  Would a faulty accumulator give me my symptoms?  i.e. fine on cold starts, fine if restarted within a few minutes, 5-8 seconds cranking required if restarted any time from a few minutes upward until probably around 12 hours or more.  Any comments appreciated.

Looks like only US models had the accumulator.  Does this sound right?  If so, it's a shame as a defective accumulator can definitely give hot start problems according to my googling.
