Testing coils

Has anyone ever tested the resistance of the primary and secondary windings in the coil packs as demonstrated in the link below. Although the coil shown in the link may be of different design I think the principle should be the same.
If it could ascertained what the resistances of a new coil should be it may lead to a means of testing suspect coils . This could help members identify problem coils
A simple multi-meter and a good coil and a failed coil is all that is required.
If someone has already done this maybe they could point me in the right direction.

See link below for testing procedure
