MOT, and doubler

Ok, I'm going to try and get squared away with this so I don't break anything 
and end up with no transformer again. My MOT should give an output of 
2000v/at between .9-1.2Amps in a continous arc short circuit. No setup with 
the capacitor worked properly for voltage doubling. I tried connecting it 
both ways with the case considered to be the diode terminal, I also tried 
using the case as one of the main cap terminals. I also tried using my diode 
string. The arcs achieved in all cases were very short, 1/4" at the most 
maybe. If I discharge the cap quickly enough after turning it off it will 
snap some. #1. What is going on with that? Should I just break the cap open 
and remove the diode(assuming it is there), resistor, and toss the rest? 
#2. I would like to put another MOT in series with it(either to run like that 
or with a doubler circuit) is any one sure of whether mismatched ones can be 
used? If I use mismatched ones will I be able to use their primaries in 
series so they ballast each other( I know matched ones won't work)? That 
should do it.
