There is a sock in the tank but the normal fuel filter is under the hood between the fuel pump and carb. If it is stock it will have 1 inlet and 2 nipples on the other side. The center one goes to the carb, the one offset goes to the return line and should be oriented to the top of the filter. If it is on the side or bottom the line will lose its prime and cause it to take longer to start.
