I think you need to check for resistance in the plug wire instead of just continuity. If resistance gets too high in the wire, you won't get spark, but still show continuity. I've never tested a spark plug before, but if you think thats the problem just get a new one and test it.

It shouldnt stay lit, just a flash.

I'm not much help I can't remember this shit properly, used to know it pretty well but its been a few years.
