I am looking plastic fuel filter/sediment bowl TAS J-33

Customer Question

I am looking for a plastic fuel filter/sediment bowl for a TAS J-33 engine with a Keihin Seiki carb on it. I am not sure how old this unit is, just that it was made in Japan. It is for a water pump.

Can you attach picture using the Tree or paperclip Icon. Here is a basic bowl on Ebay.

The fuel filter actually attaches to the bottom of the fuel tank, so its an L shape. I have attached a picture of the part, and in the picture you can see the plastic piece that was melted by solvents while trying to clean it.

I can check around the local lawnmower shops, I would just need that bottom metal part as long as the threads are the same length. Is that the closest thing you can find? I know that TAS in now considered Tanaka right? I can't find anything that looks similar from Tanaka either though.

That's as close to it as I could find!
