Ok scratch that, I just read on my meter that the power is supposed to be off to the tested unit. I tested the capacitor with positive results. The coil however Im am not sure of.

0,425-0,575 (is that the same as .425-.575 on the meter?) When I set the meter to the 200 range it reads .7 Any other setting on the meter and it reads 000.
The coil to plug wire give me a no read indicating no matter what setting its on. (On my meter its a 1 at the front of the display, same as when the leads are held apart and not touching anything).
