If you have an old ballast resistor, you can simply purchase a new resistor without the mounting plate for it as long as the terminal posts aren't stripped and/or the phenolic plate isn't cracked. Look at Carpenter or Just8Ns for p/n 18-12250, $15, for the OEM ceramic resistor used on both the 9N and 8N blocks. If the block is still good, only the resistor needs to be replaced and at half the cost. There is a generic aftermarket replacement part sold for about $6 too.
