Where did you do your continutity checks from? The bullet connectors or at the R/R connector? If your doing it at the R/R connector try it at the bullet connectors and see if you get the same thing. Also, did you do a continuity check on it before you installed it?
Im assuming when you say grounded you mean from one of the wires to ground (chassis). If thats the case I think you have 2 problems with the stator.
There are two ways you need to check for continuity. Lets label the wires A,B,&C. Check Each wire to ground, all should read NO continuity to ground. Then A-B, A-C, & B-C all these readings should read 1-3 OHMS or close to it.
With that said if one leg were shorted to ground then All legs would be shorted to ground unless there is an open between two of the legs.
One of the guys here did a nice troubleshooting chart to follow, its been going around recently. You may be able to find it.
