yes I am! Its on the plate on the outside, It got into the wiring lastnight. Lots of broken connections to the lamp sockets. I think I will have it completely rewired and replace all 4 ballast. Safer that way for whomever ends up with it. I would assume people would want to light it.

Then as porcelain-neon suggested, you should look into replacing the larger diameter T-12 bulbs (1.1/2" diam) with the T-8 size (1" diam) to run the system at a more economic rate of electric.

Awesome sign. I cant believe the condition is so good on the outside when its been hanging since 1951! Kinda odd that the wiring is corroded when it seemed to be tight enough to keep bugs out.

Not really corroded, the wires that go to the lamp sockets are just old and the solder is brittle. So 3 wires just feel off.
