Take the coil to autozone they test them free. I can't explain how in a text if you cross it up you will burn it up and sometimes it will blow up play it safe

Good advice.
You cannot really test the output side with any easily available or inexpensive testers.
If you know what the resistance should be for the coil you can test it across one that has been disconnected from any power source at the two side terminals with an ohmmeter.
