    where to get MH parts?

    I was just wondering if anyone knew where to get MH parts in ottawa. I have 2x175w MH and on just crapped out! It fires the bulb for about 30 seconds, then it starts clicking and goes out. I managed to get it to stay fired for about 5 minutes once but the bulb never got to full strength. I believe it is the capacitor but I can't find anyone who sells the capacitor by itself, only the complete ballast. What really sucks is that I just saw that cake fan is selling one for $30 but she is in montreal boo hoo! LOL Anyway If anyone knows where to get these parts, please let me know!

    Thanks
    Wayne

    Check with Marchand electric on Algoma, off Star Top road. If you can provide them with a part number, the capacitor value and power rating, they could get it for you I believe. (749-2279) They are a reseller of Advanced transformer, a division of Philips Lighting, in the area. HTH

    thank you serge!!! I just called them and they didn't have the part. They would have had to special order it but they do have 175w ballast kits on order and they are only $49 for the whole kit. I am just going to pick up the whole kit and save myself some problems,

    Thanks again
