1987 ford f150 5.0 i belive it to be a windsor motor. Im having trouble finding the fuel filter. It runs real well for about 3miles. Then it will not acelerate anymore. But it will still idle


That doesn't sound like a fuel filter problem, that sounds like a sensor fault, but your vehicle is 1987 and I think pre-dates things like O2 and MAS sensors. Fuel pump possibly, faulty choke, something like that?

The Ford Forum tells you where the filter is.

All your gauges are working. The gas gauge Is also working. When you fill it, you will fill over the limit the fuel level switch will go by a couple of gallons. So the gauge will not drop for a few miles. until you use up the excess fuel

My battery drains almost instanly


You may need to have it test with a load, i.e. while still in truck. While there is no load it is possible for it to check out as good, but once it needs to "work" it will give out. The other option could be that there could possible be a wiring problem. The wire from the alternator is coroded or broken. Use a volt meter to check votage at the begining and end of each wire.
