fuel filter location?

On a car with a stock mechanical fuel pump,does it matter if the fuel filter is before or after the pump?

If you're only going to use one I would put it as close to the carb as possible. I always use one just before the pump and one just before the carb.

Yeah, what ^ he said. One before the pump prevents any little bits in the tank from sticking a check valve. One before the carb prevents a self destructing pump from crapping out the carb. One at the carb regardless of any others inline.

I agree with Greg T and KMatch, but I would use hardline between pump and carb. There is nothing like a fire from a broken hose to really screw up your day.
