Help with fuel filter and stalling

Hi my name is Tom and in October I got a 65 inline 6 200 cu. Over winter we got a new carburetor due to the old one which was warped, along with that I got electronic points, new coil, new gasket ,and new spark plugs. The tune up helped the car out a lot. But we have encountered a new problem with it. Yesterday the car started chugging after driving it for an hour, we thought that it could be the fuel filter, so we bought a new one at the store and while going to replace it we found that a previous owner had installed a second filter which brought up my first question. Can 2 filters restrict the amount of gas getting to the carb? My second question is what are the steps to replacing a fuel filter? please help and have a nice day!

Shouldn't. But you shouldn't need two filters.

If it's this kind you just detach the fuel line from the long end (have a jar handy to catch fuel if any drips out of the line, unscrew the filter from the carburetor, screw in the new one, and re-attach the fuel line.

If you didn't replace the filter when you put in the new carb, it's a good idea to do so anyway, even if it turns out that the filter might not be the problem.
