If there is current run through the coils continuously and interrupted to make spark, then the DC math would be true for most of the running. For the transients you are right and the inductance would have to be figured in.

Bryan,
The current is not constant because it is being interrupted to make spark, so therefore the inductance does in fact come into play in the calculation.

So for the nonmathematicians does that mean when you measure that inductance is it going to mean less than 7 A or more than 7 A and by approximately how much would you expect? Personally if it's less than half an amp that's close enough for our calculations.
