could it be a sencer

Back in the day, fuel filters had a viewing tube or clear filter bath, this way you'd instantly know if air was gettin in the stream. These days, we just go on faith. I only know of the existance of a fuel pressure regulator on a ford, because I asked my fellow mechanics back in the day what it was. Never acually interacted with them. just know OF them.
