Don't know Jim. Mine clogged up and I got a new "sock" from the dealer.

Scroll down to fuel filter sock, looks like either 3/8 or 5/16.

My guess would be fairly high, like 100 plus. What are you wanting this info for?

I was gonna say see if a human hair passes through the mesh, but there's such a wide variety of thicknesses of hair like 20 to 180 microns so that doesn't help.
Anyway the sock is no substitute for a proper in- line fuel filter or the one at the inlet of a Rochester carb.

Im going to use an electric pump and recommended filter is 100 micron upstream. Currently I don't have a sock on the sender tube in the tank but thought I could mabe save some room by putting a new sock on the tube in the tank as Im pressed for room. Its going on a 65 wagon so the tank is in side rear quarter.

I'm a rebel. I've been running an electric EFI pump for 10 years with no filter before it and no issues.

You'll be fine with a sock on the pickup. The factory in tank stuff only has a simple filter like that.
