The lift pump is too cheap to trouble shoot $21 NAPA, takes a rookie, (like myself) about 2 hours, to remove & replace.
Now about the GP's,
Ohmmeters are of someuse when used by knowledgable people, if you insist on using an Ohmeter, purchase a new GP, with this GP measure the ohmage, this will be what a good GP will read.

They can be shot but still pass current!

No I don't think so, if they are shorted they will burn "Open" is the blink of an eye, as there is nothing else in the circuit, use OHMs Law to prove this, the internal resistance can not "grow", if it can pleae decribe the details, (and not what you GrandPa use to tell you).
If you follow the trouble shooting methods as decribed in the FORD manual it make NO mention of a meter, it does describe trouble shooting with a test light. If there are those not will argue, answer me this? Is 2.9 ohms good or bad, How about 3.1 ohm? what is good what is bad? How do you test your meter for accuracy?
