Has anyone added a fuel filter to there trucks? If so, did you put it out of site? I'm thinking of putting one on my 46 just because, and would like to here some input. I have a few glass fuel bowls laying around ,and was thinking of putting it right into the carb. Seems it never had one on it. Now being retired , trying to catch up on things I never had time for!

Yep. My 261 has 1 in front of carb and my 305e has 1 under cab right where fuel line exits. Highly recommended 👌

I have a metal inline filter before the pump and the original glass sediment bowl with filter at the carb, I get very fine debris in the glass bowl.

Good, Glad to here, just thought it may be a good idea to catch some of the sediment before it hits the carb.

It also helps protect the fuel pump. I have a cheap plastic one just below the tank (due to a bit of a rust in the tank) and a nice glass one at the carb.

I have thought about this for awhile adding a filter. I don't think it ever had one on it, as my Dad bought the truck new. I guess I was worried about messing up the originality! I have a NOS carter glass bowl I was thinking of putting right into the carb inlet.

I had a glass one just before the carb. They look way cooler than the plastic ones on an old engine.

That’s how I did it. Attached directly to the carburetor.
