Default EFI fuel filter question

Anybody got a part number for an EF fuel filter that is either 5/8-18 flare each end or 6AN each end?

I've got a number for one with a 3/8" hose nipple each end and one for a metric female (each side) but not the either of the others.

I used a 90'ish model Mustang filter because it was the largest one the part store had. I had a hose shop weld the fittings that I needed to match my braided hose. Last year I replace that set up with a filter that had hose nipples and changed the braided hoses to rubber hoses.

Long way of saying you may be able to weld the fittings you need onto the filter you have.

Default Earls sells them

Roger1 Roger Earls sells them and they are about 1" by 3" with replacable filters. You can also get a large or small micro size. Been running them for 14 years, no problem. I will see if I can find you a part number. Part number is 230106ERL Has #6 male ends. Need to check what filter is inside. Rick L. Ps they have bigger sizes too

Thanks for your input guys.

After thinking about this and doing a little more research, an OEM efi filter with the old style flare ends just doesn't exist. Neither does one with 6AN fittings.
I would like to have an OEM filter since I am going to use this car for long trips. I don't want to buy a bad tank of gas on the highway somewhere and not be able to easily buy a new filter.

So, I am going to get a couple of 6AN to 16mm X 1.5 o-ring adapters and use the Fram G3727 (used on '83-'05 GM efi cars). It's a 10 micron filter.
I'll then get 6AN tube nuts and sleeves for the 3/8 hard line to connect everything.
