fuel bowl assembly

Two requests:
1. I have seen many postings about the fuel bowl assembly. Some of these advise to replace “all three screens”. On my ’51 8N the one at the carburetor elbow and the disk one right above the bowl are good, but the cylindrical one that is atop the unit in the tank is missing (broken off: the base part with the solder is still attached.) I don’t see this screen available on any parts website although the other two are. Can anyone tell me where I can get one? And if so, how would I remove the still-attached remainder and install the new one? I’m scared of trying to unsolder and re-solder to this kind of metal. If I can get this upper screen and attach it, I would also replace the stem and the bowl gasket, “rebuilding” the unit.

2. If I fail at this, I would like to get the best bowl assembly I can, but I can’t find on the forum any recent evaluations of the available ones. Some look exactly alike in different outfits’ pictures, but have been described as “junk”. Any help here might help more than just me. Thanks so much for advice.
