The capacitances must be in parallel, not in series.

Lumped model of a "Tesla magnifier":
+----+ +----+--L3--+---o output
| | | | |
C1 L1 L2 C2 C3
| | | | |
C2="self-capacitance" of L2 + "self-capacitance" of L3 + "transmission
line" capacitance + other capacitances to ground at that point"
(+ guessing factor, since all this is approximate).
To simulate the energy transfer transient in Spice, add a step voltage
source in series with C1, to simulate the effect of a sudden connection
of a charged C1 to the circuit by the primary spark gap. Add resistors
in series with the inductors for something not so ideal.
