Looks very similar to an Aprilia tank filter (maybe other 40's and 50's models as well ?)

I am sure there will be better and cheaper availability for these other models, maybe worth a try

I know it will not make you feel any better to know that I have even less of those units remaining on my car !!!!  You have reminded me of another little job that I have to sort out !!

I recall a telephone conversation with Peter Harding where, if I remember correctly, he said that they were available as an exchange unit. It would definitely be worth asking him. I tried to find a source of a suitable brass mesh to use to refurbish mine and failed miserably.

Good luck, please let us know if you find a way of dealing with the problem.

Andy,
It's a bit difficult to see how big the filter is, but Fulvia has something similar and although I've had it some time I bought the mesh tube to fit Fulvia from Omicron, so perhaps they may be able to help.

I made a coarse mesh from a tear strainer and wired it on with copper wire. A finer filter before the pump deals with anything finer

All seems to work 2 years on
