    She is hanging on by a thread but still functional.

    Anyone know what the date code decodes to?

    ZW17:
    I have a few 1989/1990 vintage units here and they all have the ' 00 ' board which is the version just after what you have - I have worked on units like the one you listed, but I am inclined to say mid - late 80's.

    I have been working on Lieberts since the early 80's, but my brain is getting fuzzy - there will be someone out there with a definitive answer.

    Good photos!

    Wow! Not many of them around! I think I have seen one or two in my travels. Oldest one I take care of at the moment is a 1991 model with the Level 10 controls. I upgraded an early 90s Level 00 to AM about 5 years ago and it's still running strong as far as I know.

    Cool pictures, thanks for posting them!

    I have 3 on site ( 1990 vintage ) that I have upgraded from 00 to AM in the last couple years - works great!

    I wouldn't call it old. Maybe numerically challenged. I remember a job at the air base here where I moved the control panel on one of these to another room and ran the wires back to the unit. It must have been awhile ago because I remember drawing the schematic using Generic Cad.

    Hmm, so now I'm a liar? Let me get through this hurricane and I'll see if I can figure out how to post a pic.

    Pray tell, what is better about a 10mm?

    No, I am not calling you a liar. I just want to see this beast.
