Ok I've acquired a pile of these motors, all 3 phase and all turn nice and smooth. Is there anyway to find a hp or torque rating from the info on the plates? My plan is to hopefully purchase a couple vfd's for these and repower a couple lathes

They say .37 kW and .55 kW (kW = 1000 Watts). One horsepower = 746 Watts. So the small one is .50 HP. The bigger one is .74 HP

No I know they are 3 phase. 4 wires coming out of motor. I thought there was an electrical section but couldn't find it on the app for some reason. Brain fart? He answered my question though, thanks
