Found this online for only 9 dollars, it appears to be decent quality. From what i've seen online, the Plusrite capacitors tend to be a bit crappy.

Nice. I have an Acculite one that I bought at the ReStore for 8 dollars NOS.

Good quality things are awesome. Bad quality things are not.

I'm tempted to buy a second one since the seller of the first one relisted it for the same price as the first one i got.

I'm also going to test if it's reasonably possible to run 400w probe start lamps on this ballast without hurting anything (might be a no but i'm not sure).

I got this off Amazon.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

So i was looking at the datasheet for this ballast and noticed that it says the coil materials are copper and aluminum. Now correct me if i'm wrong but do aluminum coil transformers typically not last as long as copper ones?

Remove the ignitor first.

I know, it also looks like the capacitor may have to be at least 24uf.

Just as pole transformers, older aluminum coils cannot take a serious voltage surge as well as copper. In the 1960's Pennsylvania Pole Star began to use aluminum in their secondaries. Too many complains from utilities of early failures. They dissected the coils and found the aluminum just flat burned into and the resulting arc flash destroyed the transformer. I am not sure of the alloys they use now but most pole transformers now have both aluminum in both primary and secondary coils.
I would imagine yours will last as long as a copper. Corrosion is the biggest enemy of aluminum in wet areas.
