What I found is that instead I rotate the shaft there is no change at the capacitance. Is this normal, maybe because it´s the cap by itself?>>
It should still change capacity though.
In normal use the blue area (cone) what ever you call it, sets on the end of the cap. There should be a threaded rod through the cap with a tiny thrust bearing on the end of the cap so the screw (usually 1/4 28 as I recall) pulls against the cap and pulls the one half of the inside toward the cap.
As Tom says, it feels like a pretty strong spring.
Even with one that has lost the vacuum it should still be springy, but it'll stay pretty much where you put it.
I had some *big* Jennings around here for a while. Bout 14 to 16 inches long and near 6 inches in diameter with a 20 KV rating.
