RF components of high power capacity are really neat to work into real tuners,
and other RF projects
Looks like you could possibly make an L network with your two components...
Here is a list of sites with images of RF power inductors, and
capacitors. Take a look and send back the closest images to what you
have so we can get an idea of your component's values, and power
ratings in the 160 meter application.
