OK, the front coil measures 2.1 ohms on the primary, 20 K ohms on the secondary between the two plug wires. Rear coil reads 2.1 on the primary and infinity on the secondary. Figure its bad at least.
I don't get a reliable reading with my digital meter and the igniter. Shows low ohm readings in the first five tests which should be infinity. First test from the second terminal (- lead) had a reading "creeping up" that looked like a capacitor charging. I think I may be able to come up with an analog meter, or do you guys think I should put it back together and look for voltage on the primary?
I appreciate your help. Very frustrated, had to walk away the other day when the baby sledge hammer came to mind.
