Default faulty ignition coil?

ok guys when testing the ignition coil when testing the primary the ohms seemed to fluctuate alot and would hold alot higher than they should be. however the secondary side was reading just barely higher than the range they should have been in. so it would seem to make sense that it wouldnt be getting enough juice into the coil, but enough would be going to the spark plug. am i way off here? does the ignition coil definetly need to be replaced? should it still be getting some spark? cuz it was but has gotten worse and now no spark at all.

Did you measure resistance with the orange wire disconnected?

Does the resistance vary as you move things around or just over time with the leads held steady? I can't imagine a scenario (with a GOOD coil) in which the resistance should vary much at all either over time or by moving the wire around...

If the coil has a finite capacitance, then you should see the resistance change a bit over time as that capacitance charges up, but the measurement should settle out to a stable value after a short time.

From your description so far, I'd agree. Any chance of finding a friend that will let you swap to test?
