Look harder? I am sorry, I had to. The answer really is look
harder. The HV lead comes right out of the top of the winding.

No, not without more info.

The core has to come apart at some point. Usually there is a
rivet that can be drilled or ground off, sometimes a bolt with a
nut. There is some means to disassemble the core because the
windings are wound on bobbins and are installed after they are
wound, they are not wound directly on the core.

You are going exactly the right thing for a beginner. I realize
it is a lot of work, but: you learn hands on, this is cheaper,
it will better your understanding of transformers in general, and
neons in particular, it keeps you off the streets at night. :-)
Happiest of Holidays!
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
