Should be on left side (driver side) of framein front of exterior fuel pump. There should be a white tab to remove from each line. tines should slide off. When replacing tabs make sure they a replaced correctly.

there are two fuel filters on the 86 Ranger. The primary is located inside the left frame rail, near the area between the cab and the bed. It is behind a metal shield. Take one of the two bolts out and you should be able to swing the shield away and remove and replace the filter. It is a fist sized and shaped like a cylinder. The secondary filter is located in the engine compartment. Trace the fuel line from from the left frame rail up into the compartment. You should find it near the left rear. It is shaped like a traditional filter and looks like a doll's goblet with nipples. Hope this helps.
