ok i got two things in the frame rail under the door both have metal brackets one has wire and the other doesnt the one that doesnt have wire is right beside the transfer case with 3 bolts.and what the name of the tool i need to use?Inside the driver framerail, located under the door, before the framerail bends up to the coil bucket...As far as checking pressure, I would use a special gauge for that...
the one at near the front has wires going to it though.One will be vertical (don't mess with this one), and the other is horizontal and closer to the front, this is the filter, one side (I believe the side coming from the tank) will have a small clip, just remove the clip and pull the fuel line off, the other side you will need a fuel line disconnect tool...
thats what it looks like i havent tryed looking in front of the other fuel pump and the one you showed me a pic of whats the name of it so i can find one at the parts storeIf this is the style filter you have, be cautious when re-installing the cover, do not get the O-ring pinched (it helps to lubricate it) as it will leak. At the time I had my B2 I unscrewed only to find mine had no filter inside, so I didn't know exactly what it was at the time...
ok i found it on the parts store website i was just overlooking it and i dont think i have to replace it because am getting a good 40psi of pressure at the rail.This filter is most commonly known as a canister filter, if you have the one forward of the pump it would be a inline filter. Over the years I have seen several different set up's. Some with only the canister, some with just the inline with no filter in the housing pictured above, some without the canister housing at all. One I saw had a inline filter and a canister filter. At this age its hard to tell what people have done to the fuel systems over the years. As far as the 86 I think they came from the factory with just the canister with a filter in it. I could be wrong but that is what I have seen the most of on the 86.
