To the best of my knowledge having never seen a Merc with a Walbro, the Tillotson had a tall round float chamber on the side of the throttle bore. There is also another smaller cylindrical device on top of the float chamber where the fuel enters.. Remove the single screw on top of that and you will find the fuel filter screen
