Where are you guys running your fuel filters?


I had the fuel filter before the fuel pump when I was running the six and have seen many with the filter up near the carb.  Was wondering if there is any advantages one way versus the other.  I know on my son's old 350 in his truck the filter would heat up pretty good here in the summer and the gas would be boiling in there.  Does it make much difference?

One of the only non original items on my Strato Chief is the fuel filter before the pump. It seems to work fine but I'd never seen it done that way before. To me it would make sense to have it after the pump but if you really want to keep it original, stick with the carb filter and nothing else. I think I will change mine back to the original setup because I don't like the look of the aftermarket filter.

Many filters are built into the carb inlet so that must be the way the manufacturer recommends.

Not sure if it's better or not, but mines been at the tank (and embarrassingly I'll admit I haven't changed it in almost 30 years!) ...but I've never had any debris or issues with carbs and jets, and I've run 12s in the quarter and no fuel starvation issues either....no other filters inline.

Original filter in the carburetor.
