Lodola 175 Missing Oil Filters

Well would you believe it. Thought I’d change the oil on my newly acquired 175 sport. Duly I went to remove the filter from the right-hand side of the crankcase. There wasn’t one. Next went to remove the oil filter in the tank. Again there wasn’t one. Ahhhh. What does that say about the engine. Anyway do I need to buy new gauz filters from Italy or can I make them up or has anyone got some in their spares collection ?
Any help would be appreciated.
