Coil Design

The most recent tesla news letter had a design using 2 inductorss wound with
30 turns of wire each and it was stated that the neon would last longer with
this design. It was 50 turns of # 30 each. The spark gap was parallel to the
xformer and the cap was in series with the primary, Will this design work as
stated?. Also I have 2 chokes valued -at-4700uh, Will they be sufficient for a
BTC3 type coil using the plans with only minor changes in design? If theese
chokes are a value that will work in tesla work Ive found a cash of them for
5.00 each.     Stephen.
