Hi Chris,

ok, I hope I have now understood your set up and what you may possibly want to 
change.
Present configuration:

>to  LPF via 12 inches Teflon co-ax : Combiner to outside about 40 feet
>RG-213  co-ax  :  Outside  is impedance matching transformer on top of

And from an earlier post by you:

So you want to modify the combiner-autotransformer into a tapped one
and OTOH modify the tapped isolation transformer into a non-tapped 1:1 one.(?)

This would be not a good idea.
The combiner XFM would not work any more,the LPF would not work any more 
properly.
Both need to see 50 Ohm.
Even if you cancel out the antenna/feeder reactance by the loading 
coil/variometer you are left with a
very low real part of impedance of a few Ohm.
So beside the malfunction of the combiner and the LPF you would get a loss of 
about 2dB on the 40 feet
coax (assuming 2 Ohm for the real part).
