i still cant find it... what does the thing the fuel filter is in look like?

All carburetors have a fuel filter in the carburetor body.To replace the filter element, remove the fuel inlet line,then remove the inlet fitting and pull out the filter element. Be careful when tightening the brass fitting because the threads are easily stripped.

This filter is about 1/2 inch id dia. and 1 inch long.If you have a in line filter it will be a metal can about 2 inch in dia. and 3 to 4 inch long it will have a line going in one end and one coming out the other end.some are threaded on the ends.some have short rubber hose on each ends with hose clamps.It could be any where along the fuel line from the tank to the carb.
