There's a how to in the how to section. I'm not sure what you have when you say you have the shutoff but not the filter. The sediment bowl is a glass bowl with no filter medium other than the screen mentioned. The gas flows down from the tank through the shut off valve and into the post in the middle of the sediment bowl. From there it should be divereted sideways out into the bowl. Heavy dirt and rust particles settle to the bottom and as the bowl fills gas is forced up through the screen to catch any large floaters and out the gas line to the carb. Heavy particles and water settle to the bottom which you can see through the glass, if it's clean, and you know when to take it off and clean/dump it.
I thought I was doing my Cub a favor by putting in an additional filter. Maybe I was but even with the gravity flow (not fuel pump filter) filter, I still suffer fuel starvation with it. I didn't realize what a big and heated debate fuel filters could generate until I visited another tractor forum and saw one raging over the topic.
I'll be taking it off.
