the 87 caprice should have a carb. which does not have a electric fuel pump there will be no pressure when you remove the line. you will need aq 5/8 line wrench and a 1 inch wrench. when you remove the fitting from the carb make sure you reinstall the plastic "o"ring gasket it will leak with out it. if the gasket is not on the fitting stick your finger in the hole and remove it .the gasket fits into a grove on the thread end of the fitting.remove the line from the fitting first the 1 inch wrench is for the carb fitting. put the new filter in with the rubber valve fecing you. good luck its not a hard job at all.

on the side of the carb. look for the word filter and an arrow near a inlet nut...unscrew the nut and out pops the filter!

The fuel filter is located on the passenger side frame rail just in front of the rear wheel.
