the toriod is a bit big IMHO  but your cap could range between .050uF to
.030uF  using the turn taps at # 10 to # 13.5 respectively on the
primary counting from the inside to outside ...

consider a toriod ( prototype made from Al ducting) of the size 6 X 30 (
tube dia X total outside dia) and with cap values at .0275 - .0385 uF 
between turns #12 - 10 

the toriod alters the Hz of the total tune of the coil and therefore the
cap must change also ...    and then you fine tune by altering the
position of the tap on the primary...
