You may want to evaluate function before getting too deep in them, especially considering where you found them.

I did not do any testing beyond powering them, watching startup speed and listening for bearing noise. They both seem to run good. One has some bearing issue. I did check the RPM with my Starrett rotation counter and found them both to be 3400

They came to the yard with several other Baldor motors. Three of them have no sign of being used as the paint surrounding the mounting holes is not scratched.
With the amount of energy that is being consumed I expect most people on earth should be living in Utopia. And now this?
