GE M-400 from the EMT Pole.... Interior

GE M-400 from the EMT Pole.... Interior

Click to view full size image

Interior of the "EMT pole" M-400, this is the last of the 3 lights I bought from the car wash here in Grove City. The EMT pole finally got removed to make way for the "NEW" POLE ! The 240/480v ballast and Cap all appear to be original (can't read the date on the cap, too crusty)
this light has the blank casting for a P/C

Looks all original to me! This is wired for the lower voltage (240V in this case). The 120/240V GE ballasts wire the same way. Black & brown together with the line and orange & yellow together with the neutral or second hot means the light is wired for the lower voltage (120 for 120/240V or 240 for 240/480V). To wire for the higher voltage, the brown and orange are connected together alone and black is one hot leg and white is the other hot leg. AE and Westinghouse used number tags.

This previously had a giant CFL in it, all I had to do was put a new spade terminal on the socket wire to the cap and splice the other socket wire back together. Wired it to 240 and presto ! The original ballast for the Wide-Lite had number tags as well .

Ah yeah the insulated slip on connector had me a bit suspicious lol. I love finding original intact fixtures like this. A fixture with hacked up wiring and replaced parts that aren't of the original configuration isn't even worth being in the collection imo, unless it's a very rare light like the finned ov50s.

I prefer to keep them as they came from the factory when possible. The exceptions are either when the original gear is damaged/missing or the original gear is something unusable like 480 or something . Even then I try to make it look like what I installed was supposed to be there all along .

If it's a modern light like an AEL115 I have no issue tossing 100 watt mercury gear into it. Which I did.
