    yeah and make sure you use two wrenches to take it off so you do not cross thread the fitting. And a few rags as well, gas is never fun to get all over you

    I'm pretty sure that the only fuel filter factory on that year is in the fuel fitting at the carb where the fuel line attaches. Someone may have installed and after market inline fuel filter anywhere though.

    Later years with TBI had a fuel filter on the passenger side frame rail.

    Make sure to use a tubing/flare wrench when you go to take the fuel line off the carb, and make sure that the line isn't sticking to the fitting as you try to unscrew it. It will save you hassle to get everything apart without damaging things. As you can imagine, it's a pretty common problem trying to remove that steel fuel line after all these years.
