It's called a carburetor fuel inlet screen. Unless you have an inline filter between the sediment bowl and carb, you will need it.

You can cut one from fine mesh stainless steel or brass or buy one from TM (link I posted above) or McDonald Carb & Ignition. Your fuel tank filter may be good enough to leave it out.

To remove it for reuse, you need to remove the float, needle and seat. It can then be pushed out from the inside with a small allen wrench or a piece of stiff wire with a slight bend in it. If you soak the clogged one with carb cleaner, you should be able to blow it clean with compressed air. I use the eraser end of a pencil to push them back in. I think you'll find that it's not easy to punch or cut one out and have it fit correctly.
