    Might be one in line bolted to the inside of the frame rail. There is one at the fuel line inlet to the carb.

    Crawl underneath on the passenger side and look up inside the frame rail.If it is like my 89 K5 ,the fuel filter will be right there.Just make sure you have something to catch what fuel will come out of it if you are planning on replacing it.Good luck :D

    If your engine is carburated it's in the carb where the fuel line enters it. Should be on the front of the carb if it's stock. :thumb:

    thanks

    I was looking around the forum saw a few go to paragon. I live pretty close to it. Always wanted to go but can never find anyone to go with me brothers always cry when I take my trucks offroad (usto have a 79 bronco i usto beat) I believe its because they know they have to fix it for me. But my mechanic told me him and his friend go out there they would ride with me. Who better then to go with... He can fix it if I kill it. :haha:
