That's an NPN 80V, 5A, 50W, TO-3 transistor, with the PNP complement 2SA626. There are many better transistor pairs available now - for instance, ON Semi MJ21194/21193 or MJ31184/31193, with much higher voltage, current and power dissipation ratings.

When replacing the transistors, check the pinout and replace both transistors (NPN and PNP) in the pair.

Being a class A amplifier is enough reason to use 'overkill' trannies like the MJ21194. But if you had a cheap source for 2N3773's (or else anything with a purely thermally limited SOA at 80 volts) they'd work, too.

Since it's class-A, base-emitter charge storage effects (capacitance) don't play a significant role - so you can go with a bulletproof, monster-die tranny, even with its larger capacitance. I'd second the recommendation to go for an over-engineered, relatively-recent TO-3 like the MJ21194 or 31194 - just ensure that the beta exceeds that of the original, over the operating range.

Bra wrencher,

you're the ace, i missed the Gas Research part.
Oz seems to be the place for high power LPG, a lot cheaper than overhere too.

(the 5PPM biggy looks impressive as well, think you bought the last of the 404's)

And here the government actually gives you a $2000 freebie grant to help towards the conversion cost, as part of an environmental initiative to encourage people to switch to a less polluting fuel.
This, in part, makes it easier for all us petrol heads to get our 30-litre-per-hundred-kilometers-fuel-guzzling 6 litre-plus hotted up V8’s converted for use as economical daily drivers on a cheap fuel.

That’s pretty funny, I reckon.
