Can anyone please tell me how to wire my flyback tranformer up to make a high power source for a tesla coil. Answered

My flyback transformer has 9 pins at the bottem and is a "L40B02510 MSKK SANYO"
I was hoping that i couuld just attach the + to one pin and the - to another pin (using one 9 volt battery) then add a ground to another pin.But im sure its not that easy if it is please tell what pins to use.
I dont have a voltmeter to find the primary and secondary. I really need help and please dont send me link that will have me searching all over the internet i have spent weeks tyring to get this to work and nothing works.

There are many instructables on making flyback drivers. I found some good beginners guides here and here. And to answer your question, you cannot simply connect a battery to a flyback, the voltage must be pulsed using and oscillator and then run through a power transistor or MOSFET to power the flyback.

You ARE driving this thing with an oscillator and a transistor aren't you ???
