This is the label on my "new" 50w mercury vapor ballast. It says something about grounding the capacitor, but in the diagram no capacitor is shown. Do I need one?

I would think that the ballast is talking about PFC capacitors.

Yeah, my NOS one says to ground the cap case. Maybe it's just in general just in case you use a power factor correction cap.

It's an HX ballast. The capacitor is for PFC. Only Constant-wattage ballasts (CWA and CWI) require a capacitor.
