1955 Fuel Filter Location

The car in question is a 1955 Cadillac Coupe de Ville with a 331 c.i. V-8 engine. For reasons unknown to me, it has no fuel filter? I have procured the correct glass bowl type filter unit.

MY QUESTION IS: Should this filter be located before the fuel pump (between the gas tank and the fuel pump), or after (between the fuel pump and the carburetor), or does it make a difference?

My preference would be to filter the gas before it even enters the fuel pump.

originally the sediment bowl was located between the fuel pump and carb.there was also a filter that was used inside the bowl.

i own a restoration shop.we have many customers with this vintage of cad.we see the one carb set-ups,two fours,and the three duces just to give you a bit of my background.;)
