Default Electric motor questions

Will this motor work for a 4x40?
columbus.craigslist.org/for/d/dayton-110v-electric-motor/6328314929.html

I haven't bought a pump yet but I plan on getting a series 4 procon with adaptor cone.
I also want to add another membrane in the future.

What is everyone else using for pump motor combo.

I know pumps are rated for 1725 rpm but what would happen if a faster rpm was used like in the 3000s?

Thanks for the help

Or this one?

I would really like a one hp but I don't want to buy new yet. I would rather get a cheap one now just to get it built. I can upgrade later when I add another membrane if I need to. I do not want to buy two pumps so I want one big enough for two or three membranes.

best thing is figure out what pump you want and go with factory recommendations

I'm not sure why, but your links are not working for me. Did you highlight the whole ID and click "copy", then put it in your post and click "paste"?
But then, check what is recommended and see how close you can come, based on your size rig.
