NO... you have the resistance of the main rotor
coil. ......sure unless you just happen to have BOTH
brushes spanning stator contacts. If you do, the motor
needs rebuilding anyway as your brush housings
are no longer in alignment. If it were a dead short
the motor would never start to move to begin with
as no magnetic field would ever be developed in the coils
make it move.

Ha! If you stall a DC motor you'll have pretty much a dead short
until the brushes slag.
