On one of those terminals, a short wire goes to the off position on the switch. From the other terminal, one of the headwires goes to the back of the motor. The other headwire attaches from the high position on the switch to the other terminal on the back of the motor. The power cord attaches to the other side of the terminal plate. The stator reading should be somewhere around 27 ohms +/-.

On the terminal plate, make sure the bakelite insulators are intact and that the mica insulators are too. Check the insulation on the stator to make sure it isn't in contact with the motor housing. Other than that, I can't think of anything else causing a short, unless you had Steve Stephens help you wire it...…….
