Tell me what resistence should measure in a 2001 prius MG2 stator windings

(2001 Toyota Prius)
in Omaha, NE on August 22, 2013
I used a megger meter to test my MG2 in a first generation prius. I have measured from the 3 winds to chassis an get near 200 Meg ohms.
I measure resistance between the winds an I get like 2-3 ohms.
I know there are 3 winds an they are in a parallel circuit with one another.
What I don't know is how to tell if the winds are shorted within themselves or each other.
Does anyone know what the resistance should measure in a healthy stator winding?
Appreciate any an all help I can get here.
Thanks much, Hank
