This is one two I found in a attic of a old church were I went to school at for three years and I never thought they would up there.
How old is the fixture?

Yeah 1940s by the looks of it. Where's the rest of the light? 3-lamp preheaters are pretty rare, especially with a 3-lamp ballast. John/dieselnut has a bunch in his shop.

The turrt len is off to the side out of the picture the ballast might have to be replaced because the wiring is hard it spend most of it life in a attic and the hot Texas weather didn't help the made the cloth wires hard.

dont ross this ballast out. It can be rewired
with carefull work. thing is if insulation flaking off that one thing, but if insulation stil intact
try not to disturb them too much esp where wire enter the ballast.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Yeah worse case scenario cut the wires a few inches from the ballast case and replace them and just coat the remaining few inches of ballast wires with liquid electrical tape (black pasty stuff that dries rubbery), especially around where the wires enter the ballast case. It will help keep the cloth from flaking away. I usually do a nice heavy coat and the next day slap on another coat around the wires where they enter the case.

^^Actually no need to cut off the wires, just slide a piece of heatshrink tubeing over the entire length. (don't even need to 'shrink' it if you don't want). The stuff can be picked up fairly cheap on ebay & comes in multiple different sizes & colors.
