Can you mention a few of the specs of the coil, what is Cp size ? and Fo
with the torid in place.
I have a similar coil and although I have never achieved MOT arcing under
oil I think there can be very unfortunate primary voltage ring ups with
6MOTs, the firng times and the Cp value. With 300bps srsg, 90nF, I have rung
up my primary to voltages which I guess must have been 30kv or so as I had a
bang in the MMC and a very wide safety would fire madly. I'm told that
300bps is a difficult bps and is unstable , I wonder if you have something
happening like this.
