	I floated over it also;( 

	I did have a thought though, put them in series, dunk them in
oil, connect to your transformer on one side and your spark gap on the
other. connect the gap back to the transformer. Now fire it. If you
see arcing to the cores, just clean off the oil with some solvent. (I
use paint thinner) Unwind the coils. Insulate, and rewind.


p.s. 	reality checks ALLWAYS welcome!
