Electronic ignition coils really need a tester that can energise the coil and not a multimeter.

However, most old saws that therefore use points which can be tested with a multimeter are generally around 1.5ohms on primary and 7.5 kohms on secondary fyi.

Does the coil read anything on the multi meter?
Yes , i posted them at the top of this thread.
Just to get this straight,it won't spark pulling the rope?
As mentioned,pull it like you mean it.
As Bob said need coil & flywheel numbers to see if compatible for a start.
Correct won't spark with pull rope , will with a cordless drill.

Message quote NOT working...

Laminations are FUBAR. Unknown if you could press these out and a new set in. I don't know how one could bend the laminations that badly without damaging the coil itself.
Yeah , I'll have to see about how to removing the flywheel without messing up the timing.

So as long as I don't remove that I'm good ?

I have this vision you may have been taken advantage of- sold a pretty much trashed wreck that is not likely to run, you bought in good faith through inexperience.

There is a slot milled in the crankshaft and a corresponding slot in the flywheel, there is a metal half circle like key that lines up in those two slots to hold the flywheel in the correct timing- there is no way to mess it up- if you put it back together with the key back into both slots and the nut done up tight.

The next fun bit will be removing the flywheel for you- as I doubt you own a threaded puller, if you are unsure about wheel timing and if that coil is worth testing mashed up as it is.
