The other unit is older - has the earlier transformer, but no date written on it. Need SN to estimate age, but I'd guess 1986.
Sure looks like you're right. I zoomed in as much as I could and the symbol on top looks like maybe some kind of inductor. Looks like I figured right, somebody would know what feature changed and tip off what the story was.
Wow Dan, glad the blowout didn't get any higher! I've had a passing semi blow a tire and get hit by some scraps but never have seen it do that much damage. But the size of pieces you'll see along the road sometimes suggests being at just the wrong place at the wrong time could be bad. And sounds like you were lucky enough to be at that spot. Not what you expect to have happen all of a sudden. But I guess this hot weather and roads has probably caused a lot of loaded tires to blow. Hope you can get the car fixed up shortly!
Yeah it hit the hood as well but didn't do anything I could see there. I wish it had been just a piece but it was literally the whole tire tread that smacked the car. It was for sure wrong place at the wrong time. Add to it the heat and it just plain stunk.
