Re: stupid question on fule filter

Do you have the 5.0 or the 5.8 litre motor? All I can say is follow the fuel line all the way from the carb if it's the 351W to the tank. If you still can't find one then you may have figured out your problem. Only thing to do then is to pull and clean the carb and install a filter this time. I think with some duel tank jobbers it may be in the frame rail.

Re: stupid question on fule filter

It's right under your a$$ lad

Jump out and climb under. It's on the inside of the frame rail and looks like a 3" wide black plastic jar lid.

This is the filter for it;



You undo the lid slowly, watching our eyes (over 40 psi comin' at you) with a drain pan under it. You'll loose a cup or so of gas, unless you leave the ignition on, then you'll get an ethyl shower !

Use an old dry tooth brush to clean out the jar lid threads and the threads on the housing. Replace the O-ring and put it together dry and tight, but DO NOT overtighten.

Re: stupid question on fule filter

Glad to help out

can't help you on your Jeep problem, maybe there's a 12 step program (Just kidding).

Actually I'm a Mopar car guy, but the choice was clear when it came time for a truck for the Arctic (where I took it for our first two years together); Ford, Ford or Ford.

I wanted a tough rugged truck , so a poser truck from GM was out, and I couldn't afford a Ram, so the choice was clear.

I never even considered a Jeep as I'm a big guy and I didn't want to freeze to death.

There's a reason 95% of the trucks up there are Ford !

BIG BTW

If you don't see that filter on the shelves at Walmart, go up to the service/oil change area with that Fram part number and they'll sell you one out of their garage stock.

Good luck with your Ford and hey it's your money with the Jeep (har har)
