coil test

Forgot how to test my coil. The test that by passes the distributor. You disconnect the primary wire from the distributor, then what?

I'm sure I read about this on this forum somewhere Thought I saved it but my computer has continuous running operator errors, therefore its now lost forever. So some body bail me out please.

I don't know what test you were thinking of, other than just testing to see if you can induce a spark. That's simple, just break the primary with the secondary near a ground and see if you get a spark. BUT coil tests are notoriously unreliable indicators of coil performance. When in doubt, especially if problems occur as the coil warms up, it's time to replace it.
