quick FYI for me on testing electric DC motors?

I'm using Craig's List to find a motor.
" wanted - used motor. atleast 7.5 inch diamater, DC, ..." etc...

i've already gotten a few replies, people don't seem to know how much the motors could be worth so i may be able to get away with under $100 for a good motor.

Now the hard question -

what size battery should i take to test a random motor of atleast 7 inch diameter to be sure it's good and appears to do what i need for EV?

or is there some way i can test one with a meter?

if i blow $100 on a BAD motor then the wife test will flunk me for weeks!

the add that i'm using:
Craig's List ad
