As another researcher mentioned, records are sparse for Kovel. A reesearcher named Alex Dunai (aidunai@...) did find records for my ancesters from there here:
 
List of the documents studied in the state archive of Zhytomyr oblast :
1.Revision list 1858 for the town of Kovel ( fond 118, opys 14, file 122) 
2.Supplementary revision list 1862 for the town of Kovel ( fond 118, opys 14, file 319
3. Supplementary revision list 1865 for the town of Kovel ( fond 118, opys 14, file 79) 
4.Payment book of  volatile taxes* arrears for Kovel county 1904-1915 ( fond 118, opys 21, file 402)

You also might see if my Kovel Kehilalinks page is any help: https://www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kovel/kovel.html
