My Bentley's at home (right next to my Rolls, and Audi :-), and your guess
may be about right, but here's something to consider:  when I checked the
resistance of the spark plug wire a few years ago on my 5KT (RIP), 3 of the
5 were dead *open*, at least as far as my cheap meter could tell!  But the
car still ran fine and didn't miss, or anything. My best guess is that it
was just arcing across internal breaks in the wire ...

So ... if you're getting a reading at all, you're probably OK.
