My sylvainia powerlite was giving me issues. It would just flicker purple so I replaced it with a brand new AEL roadking 115 100w hps

Hopefully you kept the Powerlite? Sounds like the ignitor (or lamp, but I assume you tried that already) or could be a loose wire. The Powerlite R47 and 115 use the same refractors so whatever you used in the Powerlite for FCO optics can be used in this light as well.

If you want to make the light pattern long and narrow, adjust the socket so it's as far out into the reflector as it will go (which it appears to be). This is "Type II" distribution. To adjust to a shorter, wider beam (will light less to the side of the light and more in front of the light), adjust the socket so it's as close to the "pole" as possible. That will provide "Type III" distribution.

Lamp was new, cap seem to have leaked sticky stuff. I replaced internals with 70w metal halide and mounted it over bbq. The refractory shattered because I was drunk and fell through the milk crate I was standing on. Just abouthitmy head on my backhoe bucket

Ah capacitor issues... Hmm. 70W MH is nice and with the white wire disconnected on it you can run 100W MV lamps almost to spec if you like MV light. The 70W MH will give better quality light and be a little brighter too, though.

You can shrink the picture in Microsoft paint. Cropping the picture will also reduce its size. Shrinking it in paint won't cut anything out of the picture, it makes the picture smaller as a file, meaning less pixels. So the picture won't be as hi-def.
