1986 F250 7.5l dies going uphill

I'm about 80% sure it's an issue with the fuel regulator and or the fuel filter. I bought this truck (my first one) 2 days ago aware of the issues. I follow the fuel line, and I don't see any in line fuel filter. I similarly cant seem to find the little plug in one that's supposed to be attached to the carb. Also, I cant find the fuel regulator. I'll attach some photos, maybe somebody here will be able to recognize where they are?

I recently got a 1986 F250 4x2 with a 460 and C6. I got a Haynes manual with a red cover that goes from 1980-94, along with a Chilton manual that is similar, and they are helping me learn where things are. I admit the electrical diagrams would be hardest for me to be acquainted with.
