Pinch and then twist with this style?

Appears so. It got here to late for me to try out.

Going to put on a firewood cutting 440 for testing in field. 

Test fit it here on a bust 440 tank later just to check out.

Ah the dreaded flippy cap, lol. The only part I hate on the new(er) Stihl OPE.

I like the new design!
044/440, long live the greatest!

@DefinitiveDave  how does that other style shown on the 290 crankcases secure? Is there a single push in button on those like on the LCS ones?

nope no button, no moving parts at all just insert and twist
I like the ones I am chasing better but am planning to sell the Gregg-Cap.  It feels solid and seals strongly, heck just the hate-stream flippy rage amongst sawyers will guarantee vigorous sales :)
In more annoying news the Farmertec 290 crankcase can only use the special twistys so when I steal a pair for a project saw I cant even sell the crankcase for parts :(
fliipys caps yeeeaaaaaaah

Dave, can you expand on the Farmertec crankcases re the fuel caps? Not following what you're saying.

sorry bout that
The caps I have been chasing are available from farmertec ONLY with a replacement aftermarket ms290 (et al.) crankcase assembly.
I discovered late last week that these crankcases will only accept the special non-flippys and wont use any other caps at all.
I was planning to sell the FT 290 crankcases with regular flippys and keep the uber cool caps for my own projects, but now that wont work.
I haven't given up on my favorites yet, meanwhile it looks like the Gregg-cap will be available in both flippy sizes in  the nearish future :)
one day will be free of the tyranny and oppression that these flippy caps have burdened us with and can once again turn our full attention to the serious, ctitical oil type/ratio question :)
