The speed coil is resistance wire wound around an insulator, like asbestos. I prefer fiberglass for obvious reasons. There should be a couple of ohms readings across the coil, like 100 and 200. I've no idea what ohms but it will be likely in that range.
The resistance wire is essentially stainless steel which has issues with regards to soldering. If you get no readings, or very high ones, re-solder the connections to the switch before you do anything else.
These can be rewound quite easily at home.
Cheers,
