Sent a note to HL, they don't have old style,  Chainsawr has OEM at a price I am not willing to pay.  Soooo, I guess it's flippy cap after market.  Looking thru ebay they all have the same picture with varying prices.  Guess I'll just pick one and go for it. 

Hope all is well,

Three of the AV mounts use a Pan head self-tapping screw IS-P6x19, the one above the coil is Pan head self-tapping screw IS-P6x32.

I bet the wrong 32 mm screw found it's way into the fuel tank.

It's getting hard to find a good 044 OEM tank assy, many have lost fights with skidders or trees. :(

Back in the day, we used Marine Tex to fix gas tanks on 066 saws that had the chain break and gouged holes. By the looks of them, it wasn't the first chain that made the breakthrough. Also used Marine Tex to put the little metal squares back in place that closed off the oil tank from the gas tank on the big Pioneers.

The most simple long lasting and effective fix is just winding some ptfe plumber's tape on the screw and tightening it down. Applying some epoxy cement on top of the screw after covering it with the tape is added insurance
