When you say they are "jumpered at the compressor" what do you mean? If you are saying there is continuity between the two terminals, but no wire on the outside, that would be correct. There should also be continuity between the common terminal and the other two. the actual resistance is going to be small, say like about 6 ohms or so from the common terminal to run, and 8 or so ohms from the common terminal to the start terminal.

Normally m = motor or the "run" terminal of the comp. S = the start terminal of the comp. The common usually goes straight to the compressor, though it may have a overload protector in between line and the terminal of the comp.
