I had a 61' 390, just take off the oil pan and it's right in front of you.

Just take out the shaft to the distributor first or it'll get hug up or just hit you in the head when you pull the pump down..

Usually the 390 has a mechanical fuel pump on the front of the driver's side of the engine. There's a small, screw-on canister on the bottom of the pump, a little smaller than a soda can. The filter is inside of that canister. Just be careful you don't dent it up removing it.

Will a mechanical fuel pump leak gas into the oil?

Yes it can. Agreed. I had it happen to me on a Ford 390, the fuel pump is driven by an off set circle on the end of the camshaft, on the bigger gear driven by the timing chain that pushes a lever on the fuel pump. If the rubber diaphragm in the pump cracks or leaks for any reason it will begin to pump gasoline in to the crankcase.
