You're right Fuelishnot, WWII Props uses a 7.5hp Baldor.

What do people think of this motor?

10 hp 1740rpm 215T Frame TEFC (Farm Duty) 230 Volts Leeson Electric Motor # 140706

    * 230 volts 40.0 amps 60hz.
    * TEFC - Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled - Electrically Reversible
    * Manual Overload Protection - Service Factor 1.0
    * NEMA 215T Frame - Flat Rigid base mount - 1 3/8" Diameter shaft x 3 3/8"
    * Class F Insulated - Ball Bearings w/low temp grease

I'd use this with a 12hp Listeroid.

Or since I'm net metering, is a 10 hp induction generator a little overkill.  One thought I had was I wouldn't have to run the engine as long every month.  The downside is a 12 hp is double the price of a 6hp. 

The nice thing about a 12 hp motor is if the grid does go down I could have a back up 7.5 kW generator.  I know the gen head is a little oversized for this motor but I'm hoping I'd have a little more head room with the 7.5kw for the well pump.

All insight or comments are appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve
