    You'll have to measure it, of course... Measure the distance between the mounting tabs, top and bottom. These measurements (plus the ID of the bolts you have) will give you the numbers. 8x42 means you have a bolt that is 8mm and 42mm between your mounting tabs. Could be 6mm or 10mm ID and many different widths. Get some digital calipers and measure to the nearest 1/10th of a mm. Tell your local bike shop to use QBP and they should be able to get what you need.
