My ballast just went on a 3 bulb fixture and I am considering overdriving 2 ballasts to take its place. One 4 bulb to overdrive 2 bulbs, and one 2 bulb to overdrive one bulb. I took apart a shop light and this is the ballast with it:

Is this capable of ODing and how would you wire it? The yellow wire is confusing.
The other ballast I will have to pick up yet.
Thanks for your input!

Well I didn't go into overdrive on this one. I just replaced the ballast with a new one yesterday. It was 20.00 for a new ballast. The plants are happy now.
