There is a way to preset the phase to some degree.  I don't
remember the proper range at the moment because I usually
just start the coil at very low power using the main variac, then I
adjust the gap phase for best spark output.  Then I keep raising
the input power a little at a time using the main variac, and I keep
adjusting the phase each time to make sure it's at the best point.
