Rick if you choose to change the coil to a rotary inductor, you may be able 
to do as you wish more conveniently.  But finding a rotary inductor of this 
power capability is something had to do, then you have to modify the deck to 
mount it, then add the drive and counter for it.

If you want to do that, contact me off list, I might be able to steer you to 
someone who could help.
