How can I bench test the Brown Dynatek 1.5 Ohm Coil?

You just did test the coil. By swapping spark plug wires at the coil end you made the defect switch sides. The defect goes to whichever side that specific coil is connected to. This is more definitive than testing resistance in the primary and secondary windings.
