Default 1966 Center carb fuel inlet filter size

Is there a special brass fuel filter for the center Tripower carbs? I had a regular Rochester fuel inlet nut on my center carb, which has a much larger fuel line diameter than the special Tripower fitting to accept the small fuel line fitting. The brass fuel inlet filter fit that nut perfectly. I just got a new (repo) Tripower center fuel nut and now that brass filter that fit the wrong nut is too long for the correct Tripower nut. The Tripower fitting does not have the flare for that filter to ride in.
Or does the Tripower not use one of those?

The '66 Tripower center carb does not use a filter inside the carb. There should be an AC GF-61P filter in a bracket mounted on the front carb.

You can buy all the parts at Ames or PM me.

Thank you for the reply and pics. I got the fuel lines on, mostly. I used the 5/16s copper flared washers. Now I see I need 1 3/8s for the main fuel line. This is what's killing me, is there are so many little parts I need and each one takes a week to get by the time I order and ship.
