I don't know about any other filters, and the microfiche does not
indicate any either.

We flushed the tank before replacing the fuel pump the first time, and I
expected to find a clean tank when replacing the fuel pump. The fuel
filter was reasonably clean but the mesh on the fuel pump had quite a
bit of rubbish clinging to it. Now that I am expierinced in opening  the
tank, I am thinking of flushing the tank again.
