    Copper clad aluminum wire was around for a few years. It would loosen up like aluminum, if a bit more slowly. I wonder if the old wire in this panel is some of that?

    They look like they were white at one time, but things have obviously gotten hot since then. I've seen that sort of thing happen as a result of lightning, as well as bad electrical work.

    It looks to me like the inlet side has been driven into the ground. If the short pipe under the union was replaced with about a 2" nipple, it would level off.

    I have a few of those. Goodman machines replaced the old Yorks. IMHO, it would have made more sense to turn the new machines, but it was not my call.
