I question what it is that you define as a "short". Reason being, that the armature in that generator is about 0.1 Ohm or less, so with 'trusty Ohmmeter' in hand, you are all set for a misdiagnosis. Remove belt from generator, apply battery power to gen terminal and if it spins like an electric motor, you do not have a short in that generator. Furthermore, if cut out is good, it disconnects gen from system when engine off, so even if gen had a short, it would not discharge the battery.
