In-line fuel filter location

Since we have owned our 345 for almost 2 years I thought I should change the in-line fuel filter. Where is it? The book says "at the tank". Big help. I can't find it anywhere.
I know someone knows where they are located.
Thanks, Rob

There are two canister filters. One at the electric fuel pump and one by the step. There is also one in the carburator inlet.

Gunner,
Is the electric pump in the tank?

Rob,

The electric pump is most likely mounted on the frame rail somewhere between the tank and the engine. On our 310 its front of the rear axle a few feet. Its my understanding the electric pumps were added to combat vapor lock problems.

Update:
After seeing pictures of the rear electric pump installation, I now know that I do not have one! (And after looking at every inch of the fuel line). I have never had any problem with going up hills or mountains. I just wanted to replace the filters.
So now I know that I only have the inline filter by the step and the inlet filter at the carb.
Thanks to all, Rob
