    never known a filter inside a pump, the only place they tend to be is in the union fittings feed or return.

    There is not one in the fuel injection pump (FIP) itself that I have come across. There is one on the electronic pump that is situated in the tank and then there is your actual fuel filter but once it reches the FIP it's filtered so there isn't one in it, unless someone wants to correct me?

    By fitting, do you mean the small silver thing that is inline between you fuel filter and your FIP? If you do then that is a one way valve in order to ensure the pump doesn't drain back and leave you with air in the system.

    the unions sometimes had a gauze filter fitted on the end as a precaution.
