Flux Capacitor

Although the world did not end on the 21st of December of 2012, my Flux Capicator did . What ever issues might have killed my flux capicator? I regularly lubricate it (the beer helped) so I do not understand why it has ceased to function. Any help would be appreciated as I will need to purchase a new one and am wondering if I missed something on its maintenance schedule.

Consider switching lubricants to something with more capacity to incapacitate?

I sorry to hear that. I guess with the failure of your Flux Capacitor this will sure put a crimp in your "future" travels won't it?

Yes must use something stronger. When mine stops I usually get a quart or two of moonshine. That does the trick every time.

Flux Capicator

Just thought I would pass on to all if they have experienced a failure of their Flux Capicator I have found them available on the net at this site

Buy.com - Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Replica

Now if someone could help me!! I have been to all the auro parts places trying to get some Relative Bearing Grease with no success. Even went to Wal Mart and the guy looked for it on their website without success.

It will take a regen cycle with Plutonum to get it going again. Take good care of it. Parts are impossible to find since Dr Brown disappeared.

What did McFly have to get to get it working again? I seem to remember something had to be added.

Most common problem is the Jiggle pin adjustment, often overlooked when serviced due to the difficult placement behind the gyro cosmic reltavater sight window being fogged with too much lube.

On my ship we keep it in the same locker as a Bucket of steam, keeps the grease pliable.

Flux Capacitor

Well, my brother has removed his Flux Capacitor from his DeLorean, but I don't think he wants to sell it.
This is my brother Wyatt in his 'Doc' outfit, and his show quality DeLorean.
