The (L' U' r U') trigger is ridiculously fast, but it takes some getting used to. Do both U' turns with your left hand, the first one with your index finger and the second with your middle finger. Click here for a description of how to use your index and middle finger like this.

Ok so this move is weird. I don't hardly use finger tricks but I can consistently perform this trick in under 3 seconds. For the (U2 y) and (U2 y') you have to blend the U turn and cube rotation together by turning d and U at the same time. You have to hold the cube at a slight tilt towards you most of the time.

No that is not a joke, I really do this entire alg as one finger trick. This is one of my fastest OLL algs. Do the trigger like (R U R') (U) (R U2) (R'). Trigger the (U) with your right ring finger, and as you finish grab the FR edge column of the cube (thumb on the D sticker of DFR, middle finger on the U sticker of FUR) and go immediately into the (R U2). After the U2 in that trigger hit the U sticker of the FUR corner with your right hand thumb while also using your right index finger to turn the last R'.  
39A) a) L F' L F2 R' F R F2 L2 b) (r U' L) U2 (R' U R) U2 (L' r') 
Do the (r U' L) exactly as you would do (L U' L), only turn the r double layer for the first L. For the final (L' r') turn both the L and r layers at once to solve the cube and end up with your last layer color on top.  
39B) a) R' F R' F2 L F' L' F2 R2 b) (l' U R') U2 (L U' L') U2 (R l) 
Do the (l' U R') exactly as you would do (R' U R'), only turn the l double layer for the first R'. For the final (R l) turn both the R and l layers at once to solve the cube and end up with your last layer color on top.  
40) a) R U R' U' R' L F R F' L' b) (R U R' U') M' (U R) U' r' 
This alg is one of my fastest OLL algs. Do the U' in (R U R' U') with your left index finger, and the M' with your left ring finger. Do the U in (U R) with your right index finger, and the following U' with your left index finger.
