My A3 is pretty close to original, purchased in 1982. I have upgraded it with stainless steel hardware, and a few of the traps have been replaced. It was, and still is, spec'd for lots of power. I don’t believe they changed the rating when going from A3 to A3S - in fact the only change was supposed to be in the use of stainless steel hardware.
Good luck getting it down, but for what it is, it works pretty well.
