REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
NEVER SMOKE WHEN WORKING AROUND OR NEAR GASOLINE! MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO IGNITION SOURCE NEAR YOUR WORK AREA! Carburetor Mounted Filters Fig. 1: Fuel filter used in the Holley 4180 carburetor
Fig. 2: Filter which screws into the carburetor float chamber
Several different types of carbureted-mounted filters are used. Some filters screw into the float chamber with a rubber fuel line sliding onto the nipple on the filter. Others screw into the float chamber and a steel fuel line screws into the filter. The Holley 4180 carburetor has a small filter element, sometimes bronze; sometimes paper, which is located behind the float chamber inlet nut. Replacement of these filters is to be performed on a COLD engine only.
It is possible for gasoline to spray in all directions when disconnecting the fuel line! For this reason, wearing eye protection is recommended during this procedure.
Do not overtighten the filter! The threads in the carburetor bowl are soft metal and are easily stripped! You DON'T want to damage these threads!!
The 8-360 and 8-390 engines, and some 6-300 engines used a fuel pump mounted filter. The filter element is found inside a screw-on housing. To replace the filter, simply unscrew the housing, discard the fuel, filter and gasket and replace them. Don't overtighten the housing as that would distort the gasket. 8-5.0L Fuel Injected Engines Fig. 4: 8-5.0L engine fuel filter
The inline filter is mounted on the left side frame rail about midway back. To replace the filter:
The canister will be full of fuel!
The diesel engine uses a one-piece spin-on fuel filter. Do not add fuel to the new fuel filter. Allow the engine to draw fuel through the filter.

There is a special tool used to disconnect the lines from the fuel filter. You should be able to get them at any local automotive shop, i.e., Pepboys, Autozone, Chief Auto. It should be relatively cheap to buy this tool.

I the filter is on the drivers side frame rail to the rear os the transmission cross member.
You must release the fuel pressure in the fuel line or gas will literally spray everywhere. On the passenger side fuel rail (on the engine), there is a Schrader valve which you can depress and it will de-pressurize the lines.
Use a K-D 3321 fuel line tool, available at various auto parts store for around $12. Use the smaller 5/16" end.
Note the safety clip on the end of the fuel line where it mates to the filter. Remove this by squeezing it together and unhooking the small latch. Your new filter comes with new clips, but I prefer the factory issue as they're somewhat sturdier so I always save them.
After you've removed the safety clip, slide the fuel line away from the filter so you've got enough room to insert the tool. On this particular vehicle, one of the fuel tank interfered with my using the tool, so your going to slide the filter partially out of the bracket to gain access. No big deal. Push the tool in to the fuel line (away from the filter) and listen/feel for a click to indicate you've disengaged the locking device from the filter.
Once you've disengaged, pull the line away from the filter. At this point you'll start getting some fuel draining out. I like to take the dust cap from the new filter and place it over the discharge end of the old filter to control the mess. Try to move the fuel line so that it's raised to minimize fuel leakage from there as well.
Then moved on to removing the fuel line from the inlet side of the filter. Note the "teeth." These are springs that lock on the raised flange of the fuel filter. When you insert the tool to disconnect, you are pressing in on these springs.
When you're ready to install the new filter, insert it into the bracket and press the fuel lines on to the new filter. Just as you felt/listened for a click when removing the fuel lines, listen/feel for a click during installation.
After you've hooked the fuel lines to the new filter, install the safety clips and you're done. It's that easy.
Good luck and hope this helps.
