What could be the problem?

Ok, this is in no way my first rewind, I've got about 10 under my belt now. The 10t 24awg was a very easy wind, but when I tried powering it up, it stuttered a bit at first and then when running, became very hot, very fast while stuttering intermittently. I was thinking I had terminated it wrong, so I tried a couple of different combinations, all with the same results. I used my multimeter to check for shorts and found none. So, I stripped the stator and tried again. This time, I used the dlrk method that matches the correct delta terminations in pairs with the wires together. Once again, no shorts, but I get the same results.
I must add that this motor never worked right when it was new. I figured it was just a bad winding job. Could the mags be the problem? I guess it could be possible that they glued a magnet or two in backwards?
What else can I check?
