First time HEI rebuild questions

Hi. I am dealing with a Chevy HEI for a small block 350...

From what I heave read, they used to use a small plastic flat donut seal, and eventually stopped using it altogether. There is also a felt lubricating "washer" too. Does that felt piece sit on top of the plastic seal? If you are supposed to fill the grease well with grease, then how does grease get past the seal to the felt? What is the grease supposed to lubricate? The shaft is lubed with engine oil, correct?

For whatever I am supposed to lube, will this work?

I have to ignition coils, both show 1 ohm on the primary and about 8.88 K ohm on the secondary. They seem to be the there a way to indicate which one is better (higher voltage)?
