blower motor

I have a goodman air handler that needs a new blower motor. The OEM is part number B13400208. It is a 3/4 hp, 1080RPM, 208-230V, 4.3A, 2 speed made by GE. The GE number is 5KCP39MF with some additional numbers of V938BS on the tag in larger letters. I am trying to find a replacement motor but can't seem to find an equivelant 2 speed. I found many 3 speed motors that appear to be equivelant in every other aspect. My question is can I use the three speed motor and just leave off the wire for the medium speed? Or does anyone know where I can mail order a 2 speed direct replacement?

Can't think of a reason it won't work so long as it has the same HP and RPM ratings on high and doesn't use a whole lot more power. Its not unusual for the high speed to be used only. Heck you may even have some "Park" terminals on your control board to plug the unused speed wires into. Obviously it must mount properly and accept your impeller/squirrel cage.
