VERY GOOD UPDATE: Ian has told me that Jim Marcoz has been troubleshooting the thunderbolt, surprisingly, the BLOWER IS NOT BROKEN! He can't figure out between 2 things on what is the problem, so lets cross our fingers and hope to death he can fix it.
Interesting facts about this thunderbolt, it used to be used for civil defence, so it was a 1000 A2-B series.After 50 years, the fire department wanted to use the siren, but the siren's blower wasn't operating, so Jim replaced it at that time, around 2000 ish. At the time, I believe the chopper was bad so he replaced that with a Dual toned chopper, Thus converting it into a 1000A2-BT thunderbolt. When the fire department got to use it, it was insanely high-pitched, because that setting was used on the 1000 model for civil defense. My mother and grandma remember the single tone siren. Because of the high pitch, the fire department wanted the siren's warning beam to bounce off of building's better, so Jim changed the chopper Tap to Level 4. At an unknown time, the rotator gave, I don't know if he is going to fix that. And currently, the chopper or controller gave.
