which wire??

I am not sure which wire that Rick uses on his coils, but it really doesn't matter. All the wires are probably the same gauge.

If all your coils are the same, then just pick a wire and use that.

Take a look at the panels that hold the coils in place and see if one set of 'seats', 'holes', or whatever they're called is a bit oblong.

If one is oblong, use this coil for timing and take a wire from it for the trigger. The coil can be moved inside it's seat to advance or retard timing.

I believe that Rick uses one transistor on each board to control the other power transistors, FETs, or whatever he's using there. It's hard to speak on this without seeing your setup.

I am building a both an 8 coil, and a 20 coil machine right now, and expect to learn a bit from the process.

Feel free to IM me if you need assistance.
