Is that slapping belt driven by brushed massive motor and a dual head
racks on opposed fashion like lycoming? Well, we had one fail,
spindle bearings started to groan and lose speed. :) and you can see
those rust colored platters through that semi-smoked plastic
housings. The platter axle is horizontal and in front/back
direction in relation to user when opening or closing that banging
sheetmetal blue doors. I think it was between 10 or 14
thick platters.

What exactly how much MB or MW that was? :)
