Question Toro 521 fuel filter

I cannot see a visible fuel filter on my 1993 Toro 521 Tecumseh-engined snowblower...is it an integral part of the carburetor or is there simply no fuel filter...I thank you for your responses.

Yea, most don't have an actual inline filter. They do however have a small screen in the gas tank covering the hole where the fuel line attaches.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

On tractors that consume 1,500 gallons of gas a year they have water filters that collects an incredible amount to junk, water, rust, rubber in a clear glass bowl below the gas tank before the carburetor. Water being heavier sits at the bottom of the gas bowl in a whiter color.
I wish I had the smaller one under my snow blower engine. At a glance you can read your fuel, ice, dirt or if it needs to be emptied. In line filters must be changed and if you can't read inside, it's a guess when is the right time to do it. I have a cheap $3 filter even on my lawn mowers and recommend it. I find cleaning those tank filters to be inconclusive. Is it intact? Is it lifted, punctured? Air hose test pass?
