I need some info on a 18-band Ruddock Chokemaster.

I have seen four, five, and six wires going to the round aluminum tube with the 18 gauge wire wrapped around it. How do you know what choke setting the wires are on when you want to change the feet? Like suppose it is 0 2 4 6 8 10 and you want to go 2 4 6 10 12 or 14, how do you know what wire to solder it to on the choke tube?

Also the relays seem to be different where the wires are soldered. This must also be tied to the number of feet that is in the choke settings.

Are there instructions for this?

Thanks
 
Hopefully John or someone can answer this for me.

Figure out the length of wire per wrap around the tube with a piece of scrap wire, count how many wraps from the beginning to where that wire is soldered on, add it all up, divide by 12 and that is the amount of feet.
