Fuel Filter Location

I'm getting ready to change my fuel filter on the 79 f350 with 460 in it. I have looked in the repair manuel for the locations but I cant find anything. I know there is the small one on the carb but is there an inline filter on the fuel line anywhere? I have not looked around really yet but I figure I would ask so I can go right to the spot it should be. I looked on the parts store websites and two of them show the carb filter and another one shows an inline filter so I bought the inline filter. The carb filter was clean.

Not sure if this applies to your truck, but I discovered a few months ago that my 73 390 is suppose to have an inline filter before the fuel pump, but a PO must have removed it. It would have been a metal canister with a removable paper element type filter inside. You can still buy the paper element filter refill at the auto stores. And I believe Dennis Carpenter sells the actual canister.

I run the filter at the carb and also a 'see through' inline filter before that.

Ok thanks. Well the one part store calls for an inline filter that is thin and metal, but the other two only show the carb filter so I was wondering if I got the right part or if there is more than the one small rock filter that goes in the Holly 4b carb.

You should check the entire fuel line all the way back to the tank, because regardless of what would have come from the factory, a previous owner could have spliced in an inline filter anywhere he saw fit.
