Initial start . The clear lamp is for test purposes, the final lamp will be the 1000w /C Bonus line I have . I figure it would be perfect for this vintage light .

The ballast is wired for 120/240 with the 120v leads connected to the outer terminals on the block and the 240v leads attached to the inners. This ballast is actually quad volt but I removed the 208 & 277v leads for a more original look since they attach to the ballast with spade terminals. The original ballast would have been 120v only.

Nice restoration Tim! Did you find a replacement refractor? (Looks like you need a gasket too.)

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Thanks ! I have the gasket, still have to clean and re-attach it along with polishing the reflector. This refractor is one of 2 I got from Memorex_Telex ,this is the better one, the other has a BB gun hole in it.
