Default How to recognize older AMT?

Is there an easy way to determine the model number of a older AMT turbine? I have one I believe to be circa 2002, ESU say's AMT on it, airstart, uses large round plug for GSU/starting, but I can find no marking that would indicate which model.

There is usually a serial number engraved around the edge of the cap. If you plug up everything, it will read out on the edt which engine it is. What diameter is it?

Unfortunately, I personally don’t have the ground support equipment necessary to read as suggested. I found the SN. The can diameter is 4”, one piece (less intake ring), exhaust is 1.75”.

It's a 180 murcury. Call usmicrojets, they may can help with the history. But from the looks of it, it looks like a very early model.

John:

It surely is a Mercury because of the diameter, the serial number and model should be on the ECU if I'm not mistaken, at least the model number, I have a Pegasus from 2000, yours looks old because of corrosion on the aluminum intake cover...
