I have a 41 here and I had the same thing happen so the tank.
Jfyi
Used 41 crankcase https://store.chainsawr.com/products/husqvarna-41-chainsaw-crankcase-chassis-with-bar-stud-set-2

is on the saw I have and the saw is handy for a limbing saw even if its a poulan in pumkin with a gray top. for what it cost me was the parts may be $35.00 I like cheap saws when I can find them and dont coast mush to get running again.

Thanks for your feedback, bill. The smaller model Husqvarna saws of that series and era seem to share the "cra cked tank" syndrome from what I've found. I found the "soldering-iron weld" repair posted recently by brokenbudget to be rather intriguing, and I think I'll try that particular one next (after gardening season is over, lol!) rather than attempt another one of failed "glue" repairs. I don't really care how the finished repair seam looks--I just want it to be a successful one so that the saw is functional again. I have cut an absolute TON of wood over the  years with it--quite a few large, standing dead oaks and hickories that approached 30+ inches in girth. For such a relatively small and inexpensive saw, it has been a heck of a worker that deserves a better fate than being junked out because of a cra cked plastic oil tank.

I quite agree with you on liking "cheap saws," bill, particularly since I'm not a materially well-off man myself. And some of the "cheap" saws I've had in the past--an old beaten-up Homelite XL and Poulan Pro in particular--have outlived and possibly out-worked my neighbor's high-end Dolmar model(s). Plus, cheap saws also make good wheel-scotchers for an old truck with a weak pressure plate / clutch when parked on a hillside....
