Fuel Filter 66 180 Turbo

I couldn't find it in the frequently asked questions but that's probably just me being obtuse:

Where the heck is the fuel filter on the turbo? And is it the same as the fuel filters on the other carburetors? I used to change the fuel filters in my old Corvair is all the time but then those were a 140 and a 110. It's like I'm relearning a whole new car in a lot of ways with this one.

The stock turbo fuel filter is located in the engine compartment on the driver's side to the left of the air filter. It's a round metal can, can't miss it.

Fuel Filter on a turbo is an inline metal canister between the fuelpump and carb... along driver's side rail in engine compartment.

Thanks, all. I think part of my problem in locating it is that I don't have a mechanical pump in this thing anymore. Previous owner installed an electric one and I'm not even sure where that is-- most likely underneath near the fuel tank where most of them go. He has it on a kill switch which always annoys me because half the time I forget to turn it on before I start the car.

The correct fuel filter is was controls the proper flow for the fuel return system on turbo cars.

If your car isn't stock, it is impossible to say if your car even has a fuel filter. Electric fuel pumps sometimes have the filter adjacent in line. Another filter usually unnoticed is the sock on the in-tank pickup but some do not bother to inspect or replace when they replace or service the gas tank sender, if ever.
