    There may not be an independent fuel filter on the engine. A small screen on the outlet inside the tank may be part of the fuel system.

    What leads you to believe there is a filter that you cannot find?

    You are right Roger, There is no filter per say just the screen you mentioned.

    i guess if i really wanted to i could install a fuel Filter, lol....just buy one and stick it on the fuel line somewhere, haha, Does this "Screen Thing" still filter the gasoline?

    Wouldn't you think if it didn't Briggs would install a in-line filter on them ?
