Try heating up the stator with a blow dryer and check the resistance while it's hot. The reading will change some, but it shouldn't change much. If I suspect a bad stator or coil and they check out good initially, I'll heat them up and check it again. In fact I will leave my ohm meter hooked to the coils and watch it as I heat it up. The résistance should slowly build, but not very much. Sometimes the reading will fluctuate up and down as it's heating up, and that tells me it's bad.
