On my neon I recently unpotted, I ran it hooked up to a neon light.
The primary got extremely hot, hot enough it was boiling what little bit
of tar that was left on it off. Is this normal? I wouldn't think it
would be. One thing to add though, when I was removing it I nicked
some of the primarys windings. They aren't shorting as far as I know.
Could this be the cause of the tranny overheating. I don't understand.
Help me please.........
