Motor is over 10 years old. Has not been run for ~3 years. Always run perfectly. Got it out of storage and and no start. A quick check indicates no spark. Has a nearly new plug, installed shortly before it was laid up. Tested the grounding wire at the kill switch, switch is good, the wire reads 5.7 ohms to ground. I think this is reading resistance through the coil, but my question is, is this a good test, and if so, what should the # be? I would like to pin this down before I order a new coil. This is the motor. I have a parts book and a repair book in my library, IE:in a box somewhere in storage. Thought I would ask here first, maybe someone knows the answer.
