Ford used several types of fuel filters in 1974 depending on the engine and where it was sold. One type was at the inlet of the carburetor.
Another was a can at the bottom of the fuel pump:

Settings for points for 454 engine86 chev c30 scotsdale one ton truck


You have a 1986 454 engine with an old style breaker point ignition distributor, GM has not used a breaker point ignition for their V-8 engines since 1974, is that an older distributor or something after-market?

The ignition points dwell angle for that engine should be set at 29-31 degrees dwell (a dwell meter would be the most accurate way to set the ignition points), or a .019 in. point gap.

The spark plug gap for that engine would be .035 in. and the timing should be set at 10 degrees before top dead center.

My 1974 ford pickup/F250 3/4 ton loses power and backfires


It sounds like the timing is off but moore likely it's caused by the point gap being to close due to wear on the rubbing block.
The gap of the points effects the timing.
You probably need to clean and adjust the points.
If that doesn't work try replacing the points and if the old one are pitted, replace the condenser also.
If that doen't work check the coil.
