Parent’s basement ballast.

Parent’s basement ballast.

This ballast is from a second light in my parent’s basement. This one is dated J 73 which is a little bit of a mystery as I was told this and the other light were put up at the same time as the house was bought in 1976. This light still has one original Westinghouse bulb.

Hmm I wonder why this is brown and not green?

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

I believe this is the "Low Heat" model as indicated by the LH in the model number. That's why the label is brown.

Current: US 120v 60hz
Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)
