Well, they're not exactly in amperage ratings. It looks like its a 14 gauge green.

It was a 12 gage wire and couldn't find it at any parts store but I got it figured out I got the biggest one they had which was 14 gage and so far it's working I tested it for about 30 min last night and no problems and this morning it ran like a champ
