If all 4 posts on the motor are the same size then you most likely have a series wound motor, if there are two large and two small then it's most likely a SePex motor.
Either way, if you are going to run a voltage higher then the motor is designed for you are most likely going to want to add some forced air cooling to the motor, this can also be used as "heat" altho it's not going to kick out alot of heat like a gas engine does but it will give you a little warm air at times but mostly it will help the motor last longer.
It sounds like you have a decent start and more questions?
