Where is the factory fuel filter on a 70 GTO?


I’m getting ready to install a rebuilt 400 in my 70 GTO. I’m looking to keep a factory appearance. Where is the fuel filter located on a 70 GTO from the factory? Is it inside the Q-jet inlet? Or is there an inline filter? The prior owner had a plastic inline filter located just off the sending unit on the gas tank. I’m betting that’s not factory. Thanks.

Fuel filter located in the carb at the inlet.

What Shake said. However, there is no harm running an additional filter as your car has now. I would replace it with a metal one, though, for safety reasons. Changing the in-carb filter on old Quadrajets often results in stripped threads and huge headaches. I would leave that filter alone if it's flowing ok and just service the rear auxiliary filter. (like every 30k miles)
