Default setting on ohm meter to test blaster coil.....

I barely know how to use an ohm meter. What setting do i put it on? I have 2000k,20k,2000,and 200. I want to test a blaster coil.it's an old one that says 'made in USA" on top. What are the values and which posts do i check to what? Thanks.

For primary, select 200 ohm scale, read from + to -, should be about .5 to .7 ohm.

For secondary, select 20k ohm scale, read from + to coil lead tower, should be about 5000 ohms.

I would be driving,then if i would sometimes stop,it wouldn't start no more.I would have to reconnect the stock setup to drive away.Next day i would put back the MSD and it would run good for maybe a few days then it would happen again.

What parts are you changing back? What MSD system do you have?
