G'day Adam  *welcome*.
Good of you to join us and thanks for putting your  *????* re the carb in the right section.
It's good to be fore armed with all the trials & tribulations of A7/10's but I hope it doesn't scare you off.
Plenty of info in the Service section Have a good look there.

G'day Adam, and welcome to the forum.  I don't usually do this but as a fellow inhabitant of the driest state in the driest continent on earth I felt I should pipe up. You've come to the right place, for an absolute goldmine of information and advice from a very knowledgeable group of enthusiasts from all over the world.  I have had a lot of help from being a member on here myself.

The first thing to do though is try the search function if you have a query, you will often find the same question has been asked many times before and unless you just want to be sociable that is the way to go.

Good luck with the new project and don't forget to post some pictures when you can.

Also if you haven't done so already the BSAOCSA is a thriving club based in Adelaide and we have quite a number of A7/A10 machines in the club. They are a friendly group too and can advise on the best service providers we have locally for help with restoration work you can't manage yourself.

Cheers BON
