i think the 145 may be for left tilt saws. i’d contact the sawcenter. if it’s unisaw related, they know about it:

also, these guys seemed to be pretty knowledgeable about unisaw motors and mounts, and had the most reasonalble prices i could find on unisaw compatible leeson motors:

Based on the NEMA specs, the 145 mounting holes are about an inch further away from each other than the 143 lengthwise. Everything else looks the same. If you have holes already drilled for the longer base then you are good to go, otherwise you may have to drill some new ones.
