Question Gauge of blower motor wire

New blower motor coming today and I need to pick up some mail disconnects so my old wires will plug into the connectors on the new motor. Is there a standard gage wire on residential blower motors? I'm getting a Genteq/GE motor #3S044 which is an equivalent for carrier motor
#HC41AE117,Carrier Furnace Model 58MXA060-12112.

Looks like the wires on the new motor have connectors on them, which will plug into the control board.

Talk about feeling stupid. For some reason I just assumed they would be short like the ones on my old motor.

Received and installed new motor, $80 w/shipping and a Cap. Installed like a dream plugged right in. It may have taken care of a slow heat rise issue I had, or not. For now I have heat and will monitor things for the next few days. Seems like the wire is 10 - 12 gage.

Merry Christmas

Blower motor wire is usually 14 gauge.
