It would be difficult to get the kind of rejection the 3042 gives you 
with a *simple* LC, you're looking at 80 dB or better from DC to 3MHz
See the attached figure.   A multisection filter with carefully chosen 
components can do it.

The usual "solder in" bulkhead feethroughs (e.g. Spectrum Controls), for 
instance are ok at higher frequencies (70dB above 10 MHz), but pretty 
bad low down.  So you're looking at a discrete design.

they've even got an ap note on how to *measure* this, which is no easy feat
