I'm looking around for a motor to put into a planned conversion of a 1989 ford ranger. I've been perusing craigslist for electric motors and I'm having trouble understanding what would actually work. I found an AC motor I think would work out fine for my build shown in the attached pic.

If the pic doesn't load correctly, the label states:

CAT NO.: M4106T


HP: 20

RPM: 3450

Volts: 205-230/460

Amps: 47-46/23

PF: 90

Is this too little or too much of a motor? I really don't know!

What should I look for on the labels of these motors? Because can't these things take more volts/amps than what is labelled?

Any guidance would be much appreciated.
That is a big industrial motor. They're really not what you want. Look up an ac-50 or an OEM EV motor to get an idea of what to look for.
