Have to ask, why replace heater boxes with J tubes?

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity

Heaters aren't connected, J tubes are a fraction of the cost, and J tubes are a fraction of the weight.
