testing an external coil

This single post is part of a larger thread. Start from the top or view this post in context.

i have a 79 motorn medalist moped,, (6v),, and suspect the coil may be bad. I cant find a cycle shop that says they can test it.

Should i get continuity between the grounding bar that is molded into the coil and the spark plug cap?

This coil has a grounding/mounting bar modled into the coil housing. All the lighting/horn grounds fasten to the ground bar.

I also get continuity between the grounding bar on the coil and the metal stab that accepts the ingition wire from the condensor.

I'm not sure,, but i expected to only read continuty between the metal stab for the ingition wire, and the spark plug cap.

Here is a link to a few pictures of what my coil looks like,,
