Default Rivergate Question

I have an older rivergate power supply with the variable voltage output for running motors. I blew the transistor that was in it a long time ago and have replaced it with a 10amp one i thinks its a 3055 from radio shack they work ok but not enough amps for my stock motors. Anyone know what the part #is on the orignal transistor?

schmelme, Take the Patr # of the transistor U have to an electronics parts store and they should be able to cross-ref it to a stronger one. I wouldn't ever advise anyone to git semiconductors from RS as thier stuff is said to be of poor/substandard quality.
It's basically a simple circuit (Variable Voltage regulator) and U should not have any problem finding a better replacement.
Just tryin' ta hep.
