Does anybody have some practical means of testing the GTV6 coil and power module that they could share with me before I go throwing parts in there?

I posted a thread a couple of weeks ago about a flooding problem I was having with excess fuel actually trickling into the air cleaner. I checked almost all the L-jetronic components discussed in Greg Gordon's excellent article. The only problem I've identified is a weak, yellow spark at all 6 plugs. I have a new cap, rotor, and wires so I'm guessing the problem is further upstream. Any thoughts out there?

I should mention that I'm trying to bring this car back from the dead and I don't know anything about its prior history except that I've heard the engine run.

Get a coil at a junkyard, the guy ended up just letting me take it for free. I used it to check a different car, but the coil doesn't really matter for comparison purposes, though I wouldn't drive the car with it. Other than that I am selling mine (both module and coil), which I know is good. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks for your response! I might take you up on the parts. I ran the coil test described on the IAP website and got some marginal values that I'm assuming means my coil is shot. The resistance between the side terminal is 1.4 ohms when it should be 0.75-0.81 and the resistance between the sides and the high tension term is 6850 when it should be 10-11K. Could it be a simple bolt on part after all my troubleshhoting? Seems too easy. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
