Default IHC LA fuel line check valve

I've heard of there being a check valve in the fuel line of a IHC LA, is it in the tank or the copper line?
Just finished restoring and will run for a while then shut down.
Thanks for all the help

It should be on the end of the gas line in the tank.

Took it apart and there was no ball in it. checked the drawers and found nothing that would fit. then this morning while doing the dishes I had a vision, what if a BB from a BB gun would work, ran the the shop and dropped one in and its perfect, resoldered and wahlay, perfect check valve.
Thanks again for all the help.
