On mine it was pretty simple, just removed the kick panel on the passenger side. 2 screws is all it took. Now hanging upside down with my feet over the head rest to remove the screw that held it up there was a b#$#h but all in all it was pretty simple. Not sure about your year though, if its the same deal.

damn good job in my opinion...
you should have seen the first motor i rebuilt alone, wasn't fun to see
i put in the old pistion rings, they werent exactly new, try 25+ years old
cranked great, but after about ~20sec of idle the #3 cyl. rings all collapsed, messed up that block in a hurry $100 and hours later i dropped a rebuild in a 85 caprice

i went to start the car today, (got in the wrong one, there are parked next to each other and it started!
but it died as soon as it got to 3k rpm
so i restarted, got to 2500 rpm and died
it did that successivly until it got to 500 rpm
now it'* back to not starting at all
i tried to see if it was pumping fuel by putting on a little hose i have thats fit the fuel rail connector, putting the hose on a bottle, and turning the key to "on"
from what my manual says the fual pump should be on then
no fuel came out
so cranked it and got about two cups out at low pressure
my dad suggested looking nito the filter, so i went looking for it
followed the lines to in front of the drivers side rear tire
is that where the fuel filter is?
any tips for removing?

Your fuel filter should be almost directly under the passenger seat towards the door.
