Default Citation toroid for TT

In the near future I'm building an external PSU for my DIY TT. I'ts going to be the geddon clone type, and it will be feeding 3 motors (type Rega, Airpax, Philips etc.)
Now I have disected my old Citation Twenty Four power amp, and found a massive toroid with absolutely no info on it.
It has 3 wires in (220V alt. 240V) and 10 wires out. As shown in the picture, I just hoocked everything up, plugged it in, and measured all the different output voltages. It would seem I have the whole range from appr. 9V to appr. 101V.
Question: Can I just go ahead and build the Geddon clone, and take the voltage most apropriate to feed my motors??
Secondly, can I tap other voltages i would need for other "thingies" from the same toroid?
Please explain as to a complete newbie

No one who can help a novice? I had hoped this would be rather straightforward. The beast weighs 4,5 Kg, so I would think that there is power a plenty.
