I was trying to tune the spark gap
by sequentially increasing the total
gap.  I disconnected/removed the secondary coil
before starting.  Eventually there
was a spark that jumped between the primary
and the safety rail (goes to ground) but
I forgot to connect the ground wire
and it was connected to the primary case
only.  Now nothing happens when I turn
it on.  Did I fry my primary transformer??


Ay-yuh, 99.9% chance
