Update: I just went out and tested the 3 wires coming off the stator with my multi meter set on ohms I put the negative prong on the plug wire and the positive on the engine block and got a solid connection on each wire ... does this mean my stator is shot ?
If the wires were unplugged, it means the stator is shorted to ground on all three legs. (which would be rare)
If the wires weren't unplugged, it's not a valid test.
