hi there could some one pleases help with some confusion with the filter covers . the ipl for both saws shows some part number 1117 141 1005 . if you look at the 042 ipl the tank housing is different to the 048 where the filter cover mounts .the 048 uses two nuts on the out side to mount . were as the 042 uses a thumb screw in the middle of the filter cover and locks to the air filter but there is no part number for the 042 cover . I need the part number or where I can get 042 cover thank you

The 1117 141 1000 cover and the 1117 350 0800 tank without the two studs were used until April 1980, according to the 1982 IPL. If you're not worried about being historically accurate you could just try going to the later post-1980 1117 350 0806 tank and 1117 141 1005 cover, which are same as on 048 and would be easier to find. There are a few casting differences, like around the control shaft mounts.

I had same problem finding parts for my early 042, I ended up just cleaning up my 042 covers best I could but they still have oil drop stains.
