I assume this is it?
Anyway I never thought I would see a 700Watt Mercury lamp again as I believe they have been discontinued for years now. Cool that you bought one with a best offer that the seller accepted
Please post more pictures when you get the lamp. Do you have a fixture/ballast that can run a 700Watt Mercury lamp?

Yes, that is the one. She also has some GE clear 700's along with several other hid's. As for fixtures, I recently got a westy ov-50 that has 700 watt gear in it ,it works BUT the i think the capacitors (3 of them) have problems (one gets VERY HOT) I'm scared to run it fearing killing a low availability lamp or a NO availability ballast. As for photos, I'm still working on that one, ( almost no computer experience and figuring things out SLOWLY & by myself) but, hopefully soon, lots of stuff I would like to show off  BTW, there are several other 700's on eBay right now, 2 of which I'm watching right now but waiting on a thing called cash in order to buy!

yex it look like your capacitor  going.  if there okd enough it might contain PCB.  was this street light
have not ran for a while? If that the case it will become
deformed causing caps to overheat.  Ive seen this happend in a building that sat emoty for 20 years
then first apply power some capacitors in the be ballast
have blown up with a bang.

i would replace all of them with Am rad
good old metal can capacitor.  the uF
dont have to be dead on but  you want
it to br very close as most of these are rated
for 440 volts
