Can't find a filter sock

Everybody wants to try and sell me the whole sending unit for 50 or 70 bucks. I tried LMC, NPD and the Bronco Graveyard. I found something that might work on Ebay but the store never answers their phone.

Anybody know where I can get this and also the asphault tape like stuff that is used to insulate the tank from the straps and truck frame?

Re: Can't find a filter sock

I made something I think will work. I kept the plastic tube, removed the rotted nylon filter part, got a new sock, cut it to fit, slipped it over the old plastic tube and clamped it on. It looks like it should work fine.

The filter should still be available from FORD, Basic PN 9A011. The is a 5/16 and 3/8 size.
