The ground wire is always supplied for aftermarket replacement motors. However, since your motor is mounted by the thru bolts directly to the steel top discharge fan guard it is no necessary to use the ground lead. Your motor will be properly grounded once you securely mount it.

It looks like you had to hacksaw the shaft to the correct length. This is not an issue. Go ahead and file the burr off the end of the shaft until your fan blade can slide past that point.
