Q: Where is the fuel filter located? on 1991 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

The truck cut off at a stop light and wouldnt restart. After an hour or so, it turned over. A little later, it turned over fine, but started to cut out after 30 min. After setting a while, it again turned over but again cut out after about 20-30 min. Now it will not turn over at all...just cranks. I think it may be either the fuel filter or pump...want to try filter first before spending money on pump. I know the pump in located in the tank...but I cant find the filter.
