Switch

On the comparison page it indicates that this does not come with a 10-ft cord & pull chain switch. Can you clarify? Is this only to be wired into a wall switch? I'm confused.
Most motors do not come with cords, if they come with cords it is as a conveniance. If they do not, they can be wired direct to a wall switch, or they can be wired with a cord, A good selection cord for this paticular motor would be Grainger item 1TNB6

Will a dimmer switch that is used to slow the speed of my 1/3 horse GE motor damage the motor?

I am going to use it to turn a spit for hog roasting. I already have a gear reduction box which is 30 to 1, so instead of using another set of pulleys or sprockets, I thought that this might work instead.
Field of Industry:: Retired with an upper case R!! (forgot how to spell capital)
Product used for:: Roasting porcine species
Years purchasing from Grainger:: Off and on for 30 years
To be able to answer that question correctly I would need to know which GE motor you have, specifically, Generally speaking, it is not recommended that you use a dimmer switch to slow a motor as the controls that are used, for motors that can be speed controlled without damage, are made not only with a little more substance, but also control the waveform differently than most of your dimmers. Wattage is very important when using a speed controller; otherwise you will burn it out. If your motor is of the type that should not be controlled, then it is just a matter of time before the motor burns out, no matter what controller you have.

Can This Be Used As A Generator?

If this motor is spun (no votage applied) will it produce voltage? I'm looking for a low cost generator for use in a wind turbine. Need to generate 12VDC.
Product used for:: Wind Turbine
Any Permanent Magnet motor that is not defective, will produce a voltage when spun by a physical means. The voltage will be propotional to the speed it is intended for, and the wattage of the motor will only be realized when it is spun at it's intended speed. So if it is rated for 90v at 1800 rpm, it will only produce 45v at 900 rpm. As a consequence the wattage also will be reduced.

how do you reverse the 5k574 motor

To specifically tell you I would need the suffix letters listed after the model number (for example 5K574 B )
However, typically the single phase motors will have wires listed as T5 and T8 or color coded as Black and Red, that have to be reversed. One should always refer to the nameplate when doing any wiring on a motor as the connection diagram 'should' be labeled there.

Is this motor reversable, change to CCW rotation, and how?

Unfortunately, this motor was not designed to be a revesible motor.

I am looking for a speed reduced 3 ph 208 motor, @325 rpm output

When looking for a speed reduced 3 phase motor at a particular RPM, several considerations should be addressed, Do you want the ability to control or vary the speed? Do you want only the fixed speed mentioned or something close? Do you want the shaft to come out the front of the motor, or out the right or left side? And very importantly is this a constant torque application, or is it a variable torque application. (An example of that would be, constant: a certain amount of weight could be on a conveyor belt and regardless of the speed, the motor has to do the same amount of work. Then we have to measure that work, Variable: fan balde is on a motor, and the slower the motor turns the less work it does.)

Once these questions have been addressed, then the reduced speed 3 phase motor question can be answered.
