Holy crappy fuel filter

Hi all. Quick question.

My 1980 351M Bronco runs like a dream. Until recently.

It started running like crap so a little work later it was discovered that there was a small pinhead-sized rock stuck in the needle and seat config. Well, now it runs great.

My question is, how the hell did a pinhead-sized rock get past my (10-day old) fuel filter?!?! holy!

So I thought, if one filter is good, but not good enough, two would be better right?

From the fuel line to the carb is about one foot of rubber hose. I could easily add another filter there. Should I? I mean, it's $5. But will it help??!?!?

And yes, I drive in dusty conditions - where the Bronco thrives!

Thanks all.

Re: Holy crappy fuel filter

My guess is that it fell in there when you were taking the old one off and got pushed in when you were tightening the new filter. I don't think a second filter would do much good. I do like to put a regular inlet on the carb though and have one in line so I can see the condition of the filter. That and I think the bigger filter's are better. just preference I suppose.
