Dave -
Please see my communications (below) with another TCML member regarding  
"tuning" a TC with O'scope, signal generator and digital frequency meter.
First, see:
for the physical test setups.
However, rather than trying to build an RF signal generator, a much simpler 
 approach may be to build Terry Fritz' "Tesla Coil Tuner", a very simple 
(10  parts) "resonance detector".
For derails, see:
