T: Fuel Tank Fuel filters

I’m just refitting the R.H carb on my C Rapide after installing an Alton and having trouble fitting the linking fuel pipe.
There’s hardly any space to get at it and the large 6mm fuel filter is against the tank oil feed pipe.
Are there slimmer filters available?
Any help appreciated.

Thanks. There’s quite a few on there but the cheap one is what I have fitted.
It’s plastic, clear and about the size of a cotton reel.
It’s just really tight behind the rear cylinder but I should be able to connect the carb pipes if I make room.
