I'm sure it works. The most you might have to deal with is the ignitor not working since those crap out after many years. If the capacitor looks bulged in any way I would replace it before powering this up but if it doesn't look bulged the cap should be fine (unless it's loosing farads, which is not a safety issue, just means the lamp will be dimmer).

Also, if the cap is wired in parallel with the input of the ballast or is wired between like the 240 or 277 terminal and neutral, you can exclude it. If it's between the primary and secondary or any other wiring arrangement, you will need to use it. Most hpf HPS ballasts I've seen use the former arrangement.

UPDATE: This ballast has been hiding in a drawer until today! Started up quiet as a church mouse and full brightness of its 250 watt lamp in less than 1 minute!

If you were running a 250w lamp on this it's not going to get to full brightness.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.
