That is the ballast. It's there to regulate lamp current and prevents the lamp from blowing up.

I ment to be asking if anyone knew the lamp type and wattage.

Why can't we just use led retrofit instead of replacing the whole fixture.

Yeah 175W MV would be my first guess too. The ballast looks a little bulky for 100W and if it was HPS there would be an ignitor in there too. Could be 250W MV as well but those are uncommon it seems.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Part of the ballast looks fried.

Part of that is from the poor lighting I had available

Good! If you have not taken the ballast out yet and the screws are tight, you might dab some oil on the screws that hold the ballast in the hood, let it run into the threads. That would help them release. You would need to wait a day or so and let that oil work and repeat right before you try to turn the screws. I have found it helps ease out those stubborn thread screws.

Looks like it also could be a 250W/H37 due to the size of the block. Anyway, cool find.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
