I took the coils out today and checked the restistance with a multimeter.
Looking at the engine, number 1 is on the left.
Coil no.1 was 380 K ohms.
Coil no.2 was 15 K ohms.
Coil no.3 was 9.3 K ohms.
Coil no.4 was 9.3 K ohms.

These were possibly the secondary windings from the link that madnoel has above - from the spark plug end to either of the upper pins in the socket.
So, some discrepancy on number 1 there posibly number 2. Will try to get a replacement tomorrow.
My plugs were badly fouled too, so also to be replaced.

Can anyone else verify the resistance of a pencil coil for comparison?
