Carbureted 2.8 has the fuel filter in the carb behind the 1" hex nut at the fuel inlet line.To test the pump,remove the line and route it into a bottl-it should move 1 pt in 15 seconds and with a gauge on it it will be 3-5 psi.To change it is a matter of getting to the lines and bolts from underneath,its tight.Frank

The fuel pump is mounted on the engine block in front on the drivers side if I remember right.It tight,but can be done.You need flex sockets swivels and extensions.
