If it helps any, I ALSO have the frame filter AND the pump mounted filter on my 1988.

Regulator is in the throttle body, though, so there's that.

Have been thinking about converting to the earlier pump with external filter, that's one reason for the 'door' in the bed and some new fuel lines without the nasty bends. OTOH the door, unless bolted shut, means someone could steal your pump assembly!!

Have to say when I replaced the brake lines I came back without making all those nasty bends there as well. To answer someone's question about why the bends, I think, based on the brake line bends, that it was to dodge the emergency brake cables, but in reality that was all unnecessary too.

Well, you CAN add the filter; I'd revert to a separate regulator, though, and put it up closer to the engine (that way, a partially blocked fuel filter won't cause a drop of pressure at the injectors). That WILL call for an older top hat and assembly, alas.
