My van was running and just stalled out of nowhere. Fuel filter or pump? on 1993 Dodge Ram Van B150

I hear the fuel pump click when I turn the engine over. I figured I would just take the filter off and change it to see if that was it. Novice here... and I am broke as can be and honestly just want to sell the thing. I got the left clamp loose... the right clamp looks different than the left and no clamp to remove. Obviously don't want to put too much pressure and break the thing. How do i get that right side off?

there is a bypass in the filter if it was clogged and would not prevent the car from running. it is most likey the pump but you need to check the pressure with a gauge to verify. Roy

i was hoping it wasn't the pump. so would the pump still sound when i turn the engine over if it was the pump? just too low of pressure then?
