Customer Question
Where is the small...

Where is the small fuel filter located on a NHC 250 fuel pump? Engine is in a 1978 M817 5 ton dump truck.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Will get back to you. Thanks.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Changed canister pre-filters located on chassis frame below drivers side door. No fuel to injectors. Pump may be bad but want to change small filter in the pump if it has one first.
