How do I test the fuel filter?

Asked by Guru615C1 Mar 23, 2020 at 05:42 PM about the 1977 Ford F-100

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been trying to get my 300 inline 6 cylinder up
and running. I noticed today that fuel is bubbling
out of the fuel filter. Do I just replace it or do I
troubleshoot the carburetor?

1 Answer


Fuel filters are cheap, if it is leaking, replace it.
