Need some help guys.
1) Where is fuel filter located?  On frame me thinks.
2) What is a normal fuel pressure?  91 305 TBI
3) What is best way to hook a pressure guage up? In line at fuel filter, if it is on frame?.
4) In doing a tune up, should I replace rotor cap?
5) Electronic ignition?  No points and condensor.  I am sure it does not have these but since I have got to       work and didn't look last night it is bugging me.
 
Got some terrible skipping.  Almost every plug wire is arcing in at least 1 place.  Doing a tune up and thought I would check the fuel pressure also.
 
Guys, thanks, I know some of this is entry level questions.

I can help you out with one question, maybe.  On 94 - 96's, the gas filter is located on the frame, in front of rear wheel, drivers side. I'm guessing it's the same for all years.

Fuel pressure gauge installation between the fuel pod and inlet pipe, is a PITA. At least it was for me. If you're serious about it I would recommend getting the fuel lines from a caddy that has the valve already inline that fred found. Hopefully he will jump in here with that information.

91 305, fuel filter right in front of passenger rear wheel..mounted on frame.

If you are having ignition problems, change plugs, wires, cap and rotor..maybe coil too. I just finished doing all of that and it came down to timing..so after you do all that check the timing...

I went as far as timing chain and sprockets...long story.

if you have a miss or faulter after all that, do the EGR Delete..

Normal fuel pressure is 9-14 lbs I think.

Also, you may want to replace the ignition control module too. I had two go bad on two seperate caprices after I did a tune up.
