I have one small inline fuel filter on one side of the fuel cell just after the line exits the tank and cannot find any other filters there after. Am I missing something or is that the only filter on this boat for the norm?

JTROne filter as far as I know. That is an odd location..... Most of the 79 - 85s I have seen, the fuel filter is mounted on the port stringer adjacent to the oil filter.

My 83 had the filter (canister) right next to the tank, pretty tight fit. My buddy's 83 1/2 had it below the fuel pump on the stringer, like the 84 and 85's. It was also a smaller canister.

Cool yours is like mine then, small inline filter just behind the rear panel on top of the tank it self. Nothing along the stringers, just thought I was the only crazy guy with just one.

I was going to change out the canister to the smaller one for ease of removal but never got around to it. If I remember it was pretty cheap.
