I made a comment earlier. The fact is that the transformer is excluded
from the primary circuit while the gap is firing if the gap is
connected across the transformer whereas it is not if the transformer
is connected across the capacitor. Whatever the transformer might see,
the oscillating primary circuit will certainly "see" the transformer
in the second case.
