    You would have a hard time finding a 'ballast' that is not electronic.

      Sure you can Gobby,but you will also have to replace the bulbs with T-8 bulbs instead of the T-12 that work in old style ballasts. Great thing is ,you will probably need sunglasses, as the new ballast and bulbs will be significantly brighter.

      hope this helps, Huck.

      P.S. Make sure to follow the wiring diagram on the new electronic ballast. Electronics are wired a little differently than the old style.
