The specs are in the service manual for resistance measurements.
From memory only,the primary winding is around 2-3 ohms and the secondary (between the plug wires) is around 2-3 k ohms.
Neither should have continuity to the mount(ground).
Look for obvious cracking in the case and just replace the wires.They just screw on.

Are you having problems ??
