Would something like THIS be suitable? That's one of the first results Googling fuel tank filter sock, you might find exactly what you want spending a bit more time looking at the rest :y

thanks for reply.
mine is a plastic round bobbin that sits in the swirl pot .the sock would probably be more for carburretted cars where the pick up lays on the bottom.   obviously a big enough sock if i could find one would fit around the plastic !   chreers

the carlton tanks have the swirl bowl built in to the tank base. the pick up and  return pipes all feed from / into it.   external pump ,damper and filter mounted inline.
i may  have found some finemesh sheet which i can wrap around the bobbin unlesssomething better popsup !
