Mad Coiler,

Hmmm,    I've never tried putting a rotary in that position...it will work,
but it makes me nervous, I always like my gaps across the transformer.
There's been endless controversy on this list some time ago about the
benefits of each wiring arrangement...but the majority favor the gap 
across transformer set-up since the firing gap shorts the RF across
the transformer.  Changing the speed of a non-sync rotary will change
the input power using either arrangement however.
