Putting my feelers out for a 361 tank/handle OEM
I got a china one,, not happy with the flippy cap, seems only the china ones will work, and not that great.
Seems the Stihl caps leak on the china tank. Or I got a bunch of bad stihl used caps.

Bob, on the caps, have you tried a new OEM cap? ime, only the oil side ever leaks, so i have a pile of used caps but all were on the oil side. thinking maybe you cot a used oil cap from a 440 up........?????? possible?
i dont care for the fit of the china tanks on any thing honestly. be alright for little saws or little use saws.

Well I am home and went thru my gas cap collection..
Is this the DDave one? I had four, two worked two didnt, I had 1/2 dozen used oem, leaked like crazy. no history on them
May go an go buy one new stihl one and see if it works.
Kinda strange that some seal and some dont, DDs and OEM, china one is sealing also, it came with the tank.
I got two DDs int the saw now and its on its side fer the nite,, we will see.

Doubt it came 9 pin. 9 pins are picky to keeping the chain tight Ive heard as the sprocket gets bigger than the bar tail and easily pitch the chain. Also requires an extra DL most of the time.
