  • Electrical testing of aluminum rotor

    There is a rotor which is made up of a single piece of aluminum bar(not the wire wound rotor)and can be found on some capacitor start motor.
    My problem is this:Should there be continuity when one uses a tester by putting one lead of the tester to the rotor shaft and the other to the aluminum part/body of the rotor?(assuming that the tester function/range switch is at the proper ohms scale).
    Thanks in advance.

    No electrical properties to it. There are steel plates in the aluminum that react to the magnetic field created by the stator(windings)
