I have read that 10 liters is sufficient for a flush, as far as the flow rate, good question...one way to find out is to pull the reservoir cap and lift the filter with the car running..nothing will run dry and you can view the flow...I would guess that a liter per minute might be average, under idle conditions.
One thing I am sure of, dont let the pump go dry...too much fluid in the reservoir during flush will be no issue, too little will be bad.
Yup! When I replaced my ABC pump some time ago I used a air gun in a cork like object and pushed in about 10/15 psi with the fluid already in there and it pushed the fluid flowing.
The flow rate is nothing like I had expected at all. It is actually really slow being it has so much pressure behind it. I would guess it was like 1 liter per minute.
