I getting a reading of 2.6 on the primary and 8.7 k ohms on the secondary. Does the secondary sound too low?

See my article in the FAQs Electrical Section about Lucas Sports Coils, basically Lucas are no more and haven't been for lots of years, its just components made in the far east and those coils are a source of trouble  and Mini Spares stopped selling then a while back.

Unfortunately like a lot of things, either people buy the manufacturing rights to badge something it. Or falsely it.
