April 1984, April 1985. Nice, rare finds!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

I recently purchased a pair of these on E Bay but have not yet fired them up. I want to build a "halfpiper" style light with them and 8 watt tubes.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

I got one of these too. I added a capacitor to make it HPF and a one way diode on one of the yellow leads, I really like the halfpiper idea.

Reasoning for the one way diode?

The electrodes on the yellow side were being heated to the point of making that end of the bulbs glow white which looked terrible. (during EOL test with EOL end on red or blue). Diode dropped the voltage down some and the electrodes glow the normal orange like the red and blue side.

I got a couple of these as well. Neat little ballasts.

@Lightingguy1994: Interesting issue you had. I don't remember having anything weird like that with the yellow's.
How did you add a capacitor to convert to HPF??
