These should be easy to find. Almost all 175w NEMA or even the cheap yard blasters have such a ballast inside. Try searching locally on FB marketplace or Craigslist for terms such as yard light. Could also try Habitat Restores. Failing that eBay should have one of these.

It’s a five tap ballast... Are you sure it’s not CWA?

No, I'm not sure. If it is, then I will delete the post.

I sent a message to the seller. I’ll see what they say about whether the ballast is CWA or not.

Was it a listing with more than one available? I'd like to get one or a few for a project.

I have a spare one if you are still interested. I can give it for free if you are willing to cover the shipment expenses as it is at my property in Lisbon now. I don't know how much the shipment costs from Europe to the States but maybe it would be cheaper for you this way?
