Could anyone please advise me where I can get a pipe that comes from the outlet of the fuel tank and goes to the glass bowled fuel filter on a 990 Implematic.

a breakers yard is an option, but possibly unlikely to yield any results. Making a new one using your existing fittings (assuming you have them) is probably the best option, via a local 'motor factor' or auto specialist.

Have been looking on usual tractor sites but they seem to have every pipe other than the one I want think I will have to make one and use the old fittings as you say.

It is not ideal, but the simplest way is to use a flexible hose. If you have the ends it is very easy to simply find a piece of pipe to go over. The pipe you use must of course be stiff as the lift pump could cause a soft pipe to collapse and it must be fuel resistant.
Another option would be to braze piece of brake pipe on to the ends
