Fuel filters - two?

    Will someone explain the way the filter(s) work on a '92 Suzuki? I am refering to the fact that there are two filters back by the tank. One is between the tank and pump - I assume this filters the pick-up from the tank. One is on a return line to the tank - is this a filter?
    There is also a small black canister mounted low on the outside of the cab, on the drivers side. What is this?
    I purchased a Wix 33470 based on a suggestion on this forum. It is close in size to the filter between the tank and pump, but does not fit exactly. Are there any other suggestions or recommendations? Any other sources for filters?

    I have changed the one by the tank w/ a regular in-line filter, but have not changed one under the cab.

    I have a 94 carry.. What is that black deal on the back? Also, back where the fuel filter is there are two identical looking filters.. one is right in front of the fuel pump.. that one is the filter I hope, cause I changed it.... but there is one that is further back toward the rear that is just smaller than the fuel filter.. what the heck is that too.???

    could it be a fuel filter on the return line to tank to catch any crap that might have made it past the primary filter?

    I know of only one fuel filter for the Suzuki. That filter has inlet and outlet on the side of the filter. It is usually white or clear plastic. See atached photo. If you are referring to the black filter behind the cab on the drivers side abour the height of the frame rails, I believe that is a vacumn or emissions filter. That filter has bottom and side ports.

    I just can't recall any other filters.

    Please add photo of the ones you are speaking about.

    here are the images, I used a different fuel filter that someone else posted in here, I didnt see the one you posted, I should get that one too.




    Also that vacuum deal behind the cab, is there a filter that needs to be changed there also??

    Is the filter in question located on the same fuel line as the first filter?
    If it is on a separate line then I'm thinking it's probably part of the emission system
    most likely a charcol canister that's on a vent line from the tank or a return line from
    the carb.

    I found that the smaller inline one that is hooked up to a line coming out of the top of the fuel tank is a one way valve for venting the tank.This was on a Mitsubishi,I would think the Suzuki would be the same?
