Default Motor Maintenance Q's

I noticed while cleaning all of my motors that it seems that every one of them have a different amount of shaft endplay. This holds true even with 2 motors from the same manufacturer. It seems to me that there should be clearance and endplay measurements to shoot for in order to get the best performance / life from a motor, so I have a few questions like;

What is the optimum amount of endplay on the rotor?
How much clearance between the rotor and the timing sensors is best?

This link shows a Killshot motor as an example, but the ideas can be applied to any motor.
