I have four 12v 11k car window motors, how would i find this out manually? Answered

I went to a pick-a-part car parts for 12v DC motors, there were a lot of them, and I found four 12v 11k DC motors from a 1991 Toyota Cressida for really cheep (almost free) :) . Google has been no help in finding the specs for the motors, Im just at a loss and I don't want to just hook them up to a car battery that would be way to many amps and is most likely going to brake the motor in the process. so how do i find out the specs of these motors manually?

Hook em to a car battery - that's what they run off ! They won't take "too many" amps, just what they need. When they are loaded, they may take a large current, but protect them with a fuse.

It will/may well be something like this - Most wiper motors are very similar.

there the window motors that open and close the windows in your car. not wiper motors

No manually meanning the specs to the motors i need the amp, current and HP and there the window motors that open and close the windows in your car.

Reckon on around 80 W delivered, at 12V, that's going to be 10-ish amps, allowing for losses, since ~750 W = 1HP, thats 0.1 HP

They will run just fine on a car battery.
