Under The Endcaps

Under The Endcaps

Click to view full size image

This is how the ballasts are mounted in these three matching fixtures. The 2-lamp fixture has two single GE chokes, made in November of 1962, mounted under one endcap, with the starters mounted under the opposite endcap. The 4-lamp fixtures each have one GE two-lamp ballast and two starters at each end. Unfortunately I can't find any date codes on them.

nice finds! and amtching to boot! yeah for some reason GE didn't put a date code on all of their ballasts. I have two WWII-era GE oval cased ballasts and neither have date coades. but one is early-to-mid 40s and the other is right around 1939-1940. The latter doesn't work and isn't even potted! and no tar leaked out either so did they not pot ballasts back then?
