Hello All and thanks,

  To Mr. Tom Mcgahee,  I think you hit my problem right on the nose!
My transformers are the H&R 5 KV 300ma variety.  Also I had my tank cap
hooked up when I adjusted the safety gap.  I just ordered a replacement
transformer and I will try your suggestion of safety gap adjustment
procedure while I am trying to hunt down a synconus motor.
  You had mentioned modifying the transformers.  Could you elaborate on
this modification.  They are extremely tough to get into without damaging
the secondary.

Thanks again,
