I don't know if the diesel sock is different from the gas version. I do know that a sock helps to prevent water from migrating into the fuel pickup tube.

If a particular sock was too hard to get, I'd be inclined to experiment with another part that is available... Like a sock for a newer Duramax powered truck or.... Jim

The OP stated he tried RockAuto, but when I just searched I see it is available: https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...+strainer,6212

Generally they're pretty good about showing things as in stock, back ordered, or out of stock. I didn't actually order one, but maybe worth a try for someone who needs one?

Well, darn it! Rock Auto showed no options for the "Fuel Pump Strainer" when I needed it. I see it is available now. At that time, I went to other outlets as I stated and other places like Autozone & Jegs showed in stock, so I ordered from each of those two places. Both came back days later and said, sorry, discontinued, here is your money back. I found one on Amazon for stupid money and bought it. BTW, other auto part outlets showed it at discontinued.
Not sure how Rock Auto has them again. Maybe they came across some NOS.
Anyway, I found one and am good to go!...I just paid too much for it!

This ^^

Unless your sock is shredded there should be no reason to replace just clean it out with maybe some dish soap etc, rinse well, and maybe blow with compressed air. Dry well and reinstall.

The list of obsolete parts is growing fast.

Everything I've read indicates the gasoline socks are more restrictive, most likely because gasoline is thinner than Diesel especially when cold. To get the proper wicking for gas it would need a tighter construction.

Even the Holley hydramat is not compatible with diesel fuels. Which is too bad since they are offered in so many designs.

But, if your sock is damaged or the sending unit was replaced and now has the wrong sock then you need to do something. Sure you can run without a sock but in my case our driveway is so steep and long you'd risk sucking air long before running out of fuel.

Some are concerned that with higher flow lift pumps that factory strainer is a restriction, maybe, maybe not. Would like to see some vacuum readings from the suction side of a LP with and w/o sock.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to swing by parts store and see if that TS1020 came in and have some pics.

The other year I replaced all my fuel and brake lines - including the in-tank assembly. That looks like the filter sock that was on it, but I guess the specific material would be the key.

Picture of OE TS1012 (part box picture in my previous post). It appears the TS1020 is a direct replacement.

That's the same design as my OEM sock. It should have what's basically a suction relief valve in the round end; basically a rubber flap that will open up and let fuel flow into the pickup tube if the strainer should become clogged.

The aftermarket sock I had was just the mesh material that was pinched off on both ends with no round rubber valve.

As Robyn said, as long as the material is suited for diesel fuel, you should be good to go. I don't think the aftermarket material mine was made of liked diesel fuel, and clogged easily.
