Those caps are the reason i'll never buy another Stihl saw, always had problems getting them to seal.

Can't agree more. Flippy caps are Stihl's answer to something that is not a problem. Absolute idiocy. This is one of many reasons I won't ever buy a Stihl.

Husky came out with their idea of a tool less oil and fuel cap. It uses a conventional thread and O ring and a tab that flips up for leverage. And if you don't like it, you can put in the old ones. The new caps even fit some of the old saws.

Here are the new caps on an OLD saw. But the 288XP has been totally rebuilt from the bearings up, a little port work and it simply smokes the Stihl 660/661's at the chainsaws races every year.

The 562XP has the new caps from the factory. Unfortunately the whole sizes is different for the 346XP and don't work.:tango_face_sad:
