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 Where is the fuel filter - 85761033.gif
Fig. 2: Filter which screws into the carburetor float chamber 85761034.gif
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.

  1. Wait until the engine is cold. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  3. Place some absorbent rags under the filter or float chamber inlet nut.
  4. On those so equipped, remove the hose clamp and slide the rubber hose from the filter, then unscrew the filter from the bowl. Or, hold the filter with one wrench while unscrewing the fuel line from the filter with another, then, unscrew the filter from the bowl. Or, on the 4180, using 2 wrenches, disconnect the fuel line from the fuel inlet nut, then, unscrew the inlet nut and remove the gaskets, filter element and spring from the bowl. CAUTION
    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.
  5. Coat the threads of the new filter, or the inlet nut, with non-hardening, gasoline-proof sealer, or, use Teflon tape on the threads, and screw it into place by hand. Tighten it snugly with the wrench. WARNING
    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!!
  6. Connect the hose or fuel line to the new filter or inlet nut. Most replacement filters come with a new hose and clamps. Use them.
  7. Remove the fuel-soaked rags, wipe up any spilled fuel and start the engine. Check the filter connections for leaks.
Fuel Pump Mounted Cartridge Type Filter Fig. 3: Fuel pump mounted, cartridge type fuel filter 85761035.jpg
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 85761036.gif
The inline filter is mounted on the left side frame rail about midway back. To replace the filter:
  1. Remove the fuel tank cap to relieve system pressure and avoid fuel siphoning.
  2. Remove the reservoir shield by removing the 3 or 4 screws (depends on the truck).
  3. Using an oil filter type wrench, unscrew the lower reservoir and slide the filter and canister out from the frame rail. CAUTION
    The canister will be full of fuel!
  4. Emmpty the fuel from the canister and remove the filter and O-ring.
  5. Install a new cartridge in the canister and position a new O-ring in the groove.
  6. Carefully position the canister on the reservoir, being careful to avoid dislodging the O-ring, and tighten it by hand. When hand tight, give it another 1?6 turn with the oil filter wrench. NOTE: The rubber grommet on the cartridge will seat on the housing stud as the O-ring is compressed.
Diesel Engines Fig. 5: Diesel fuel filter location 85761037.gif
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.
  1. Remove the spin-on filter by unscrewing it counterclockwise with your hands or a strap wrench.
  2. Clean the filter mounting surface.
  3. Coat the gasket or the replacement filter with clean diesel fuel. This helps ensure a good seal.
  4. Tighten the filter by hand until the gasket touches the filter mounting surface.
  5. Tighten the filter an additional 1?2 turn. NOTE: After changing the fuel filter, the engine will purge the trapped air as it runs. The engine may run roughly and smoke excessively until the air is cleared from the system.

SOURCE: remove fuel lines from the fuel filter on a 93 f150 ford truck

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.

SOURCE: Location of fuel filter on 2007 Ford F150

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.

Where can I find the fuel filter on a 1984 Ford F150?

A 84 should still be carburated. And someone could have added a filter between the gas tank and fuel pump or between the pump and the carb. If not there should have a screw in filter where the line comes into the carb.
