The early model carbureted I-mark and Impulse have the fuel filter located either at the fuel tank inside the trunk or near the carburetor in the engine compartment.
The P'UP, Amigo and Rodeo are equipped with the fuel filter located directly in front of the fuel tank.
On the Trooper/Trooper II, the fuel filter is located along the inner side of the right frame rail, near the rear of the vehicle.REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

- Remove the mounting bolt and the filter.
- Using a new filter, install it to the vehicle; be sure its directional arrow faces forward.
