You only need to unsolder one of the green transformer leads to verify that the transformer is causing your zero reading.  
Yupp I did that, had the Tranny lead itself, and yupp...when ya don't know, something like that can make you wonder how worried I should be.  
I have the filament wires twisted tighly and a few twists across the socket even...tight, hard to see, but having pulled a connection I can test the twisted wires connections [and N/C's] as well as the tranny.  
I figured there'd be 'some' resistance in that coil, not exactly how much or exactly where at what low resistance point the meter starts beeping.
