Bad Coil - Ohmage Specs?

Been experiencing what I believe is a misfire when I hit fifth gear on my 2002 3.0 Ranger. I want to test the secondary power through the coil pack and see if there is a problem there. Does anyone know what ohms each pair of coils should be operating at?

Hmm. It's in the factory service manual. I'll look later on..
Here's a tip..Buy a Motorcraft replacement coil for a newer Ranger 06 or 07 and up??? can't remember the exact year..The newer coils have a higher voltage output. The spark gap on the newer rangers is wider. That gives a bit better mileage and performance....

Good information, thank you Deere245. If you could tell me those factory specifications I would certainly appreciate it.

Looks like I was lying..The workshop manual does not list the resistance values.
