a little rare but worth a shot...

Post by mikey_b6 on Sun Feb 24, 2013 10:29 am

looking for a passenger side blinker fluid cooler w/ petcock assembly for my 1936 scion tc. i have the one for the right, but my blinkers just get so damn hot on the passenger side its causing damage to my flux cappasitor. i also need the send and return lines for setup. i have looked on ebay.com, amazon.com, passwordjdm.com, backtothefuturefanclub.com, fastandthefurious.com, and no one has one! if someone could get back to me asap that would be great.

i found the blinker fluid for only $18.95 with a great product discription along with it:

Ouch man, I can see why you would want to get the cooler and petcock. I just tried to find you a new flux capacitor and its not looking to good. Pretty expensive. Just in case you hit the lotto, here's the link for it.

i shared the link on the photo of the 1936 scion tc that is having the same issue so maybe he can tell me how he got it.

You know, if you can't find one, I can probably weld one up for you out of coke cans, chewing gum and paperclips. However, it has to be the actual coke zero cans due to the chemical reaction created by the liquid itself when mixed with the blinker fluid as it will give the best stability and prevent leakage during the use of elbow grease. This is actually a common issue on the 1936 tc, but despite this issue this will be about as close to OEM as you can get. Now if this was the 1938, the OEM is readily available, but that retrofit won't happen unless you're willing to convert to biodiesel.

Damn Wanted is right! The retrofit is only available to those already converted to biodiesel. I told you back in '39 not to buy the '36 man. The '38 came much better equipped to handle power. I did read up on a forum that if you purchase a set of These, that you could possibly do the retrofit w/o converting. I mean they are only $95 so it could be a good investment.

i might do it actually! but will my piston return springs need to be adjusted for the change in torque and power?

F*** man, hook a bare wire up to the cruise control and push on and it should dissipate it

In lieu of the blinker fluid I believe I read somewhere there is actually a way to route your coolant through them to cool them down. Pretty easy from what I remember. Total cost is something like $14.92 + tax and you don't have to worry about switching out blinker fluid. Google has some thermo pics showing a 65 degree cooling difference.

That's kinda risky to the flux capacitor as it while there is an overall drop in temperature, there is a dramatic increase in temperature in the ion drive necessitator. A better method of increase cooling and safer blinker fluid dissipation is to run four or five spark plugs with a wide gap tapped directly into the top of the oem gas tank. To power them it is best to run them in series directly from the battery's positive and negative terminals. Don't worry about draining the tank of gas or biodiesel before hand, but rather it's best you use a cobalt bit preheated with a torch to do the drilling to aid drilling speed. It is also perfectly safe to smoke and can actually use the fuel to safely put out your cigarettes in large quantities, but that's for another scientific discussion.
Blinker fluid in and of itself can be rather precocious to work with and has a tendency to cause unforeseen issues. However, another alternative is rerouting the exhaust back into the intake manifold when working with it to use in order to maximize the use of your fuel and reduce ingestion of foreign vapors into your combustion chamber.

I was actually reading up on this a couple days ago. If you just reverse the polarity on the flux capacitor it will bypass the actuator valve and you won't have any issues with your blinkers heating up anymore!

well i had it looked at by a mechanic today, and sure enough, my blinker actuator arm was low on elbow greese as well from the plasma burnoff heat of the flux capasitor.
