Default 1989 Honda Accord EXI - Fuel Issues

We bought my fiance's son a 1989 Honda Accord EXI for Christmas and he hasn't been able to drive it yet. There was a bad head gasket, which, at the time, was the only problem. After getting the head gasket replaced we have developed a new problem. After sitting for a while, the car will start up, but as soon as you touch the gas pedal, it sputters and dies, and then won't restart. It seems like its out of gas (although it isn't). I thought that changing the fuel filter might be the key. I found one fuel filter under the hood on the passenger side (it's a fuel injected vehicle). We were then told there are two filters on this car, but we can't for the life of us find the other filter. We want to change these to see if it resolves the issue. FYI... We changed plugs and wires in an attemp to resolve the issue, with no luck. Can anyone help us locate the second fuel filter and maybe even suggest other things that might be the problem? Thanks in advance for any help I can get.
