Testing Carrier Pilot Assembly

Does anybody know how to test a Carrier pilot assembly Part # LH680005 with a meter? With the assembly out of the furnace there is continuity between all 3 pins. Is this correct? Any help would be appreciated. Dont want to spend $90 on a new one if this one is good.
Thanks

Buzz

Yellow is normally closed to green and normally open to white.

Thanks for the reply.
When I first checked it there was continuity between all 3. Now it shows yellow to green closed and white to green open.
Im assuming that when heat is applied Yellow to green should open and green to white should close. In my case yellow to green opens and green to white remains open. Does this mean mine is no good?

Yellow is normally closed to green and normally open to white. This should reverse when a pilot flame is present.
