I just installed my laser powered penis, stays up for 24 hours also. It does get kinda burning hot though.

I replaced the elaborate sytem of belts and trusses, sold it for scrap to an excited chinese guy. I use powdered graphite for lube, or conversely garnet grit for friction, whatever the situation requires.
