''The L1 coil was around 3.4H and the L2 coil was around 2.8H.''
Are you talking about the MOT's secoundary split in 2 sections?If yes in other thread you said you measure the bobin's half and cut it to create equal coils.If you used a diferent value on the negative choke how do you calculated the inductance for it?or  when you cut the  bobin in two you made one half smaller by eye?
You also said you conected them out of phase and in the small drawing you posted it shows in phase,when conected out of phase dont they need to have the output leeads one''start of winding'' and the other''end of winding''?just asking...

''When I connected the 8XA Circuit to the coil and increased the variac to around 50VDC, I would only get a voltage input reading up to 12VDC max!''
Input reading before the chokes ?or after?
Thanks verry much Tony!Cheers!

Yea I used a MOT and just cut the wire in the center (eyed it). By eying it I made them unequal, but this actually worked out I guess. Then I connected them out of phase, not like the Stan's 8XA image. I took the voltage measurements before the "blocking diode" and across the cell.

If your planning on replicating tony's mot, take some time to experiment using the primary and secondarys without any modifications. I had some good results that way : )
