Default How do you check your stock motor for a short?

How do you check a stock motor for a short? I don't suspect that to be an issue, but to eliminate all factors and future issues, how is it done?

You test for unwanted continuity aka a short. Label and disconnect all 4 motor cables ( use 2 wrenches at a time on each terminal to make certain the STUD DOES NOT TURN !)
The check that you should have continuity between A1 and A2 and between F1 and F2 but NOT between any A and any F terminal. That's it
Use the same care not to turn the terminal studs during reassembly.

Scot, Since all of my cables were disco'd anyway, I just followed out the cables to the controller compartment, checked the way you said and found that all is good! Whew! Just one less thing to worry about.
