Default BVM UAT replacement sock/filter

Anyone know where to get it. I bought one many years ago to replace in my Reaction from somewhere online but can't seem to find where I got it. TIA.

I can't seem to find them online but I have these 2 from either BVM or Dreamworks and I would sell them. PM me if interested.

Airtex Fs3 is the one used in UATs, cut it to size and reuse the plastic spacer.

Yes, that's the one I bought a few years ago for my Reaction. Just couldn't find it with a search. I serviced that UAT after like 15 years. Had a big fungus ball in there lol. Thanks Carlos.

I sold mine last year. Would've kept it but wasn't flying it much and needed the space. I'll always remember my first turbine :-). I'm not sure I'd have the patience to build another one although it was an easy build. Bruce left very little to question in the manual and was always there in the thread to help out.

The BVM sock is an in tank fuel filter for Chrysler cars from way back, but still maintains a current automotive store pare number, I got it someone in my records.
But what's weird is I have 20 year old jets that have BVM UAT still in them and have had fuel in them all these years with only small discoloring of Nalgene bottle and never an issue with the socks. I have used exclusively all these years Mobil Turbine II oil only ever had AMT and now Xicoy.......

I have that in my trailer. Forget to put it in about half the time. Have to really make it a habit when adding oil.
