Motor info

This page in development. These tables provide original equipment manufacturers specs for the most common models. Motor rebuilds with new bearings and windings are preferable to total replacements because the dimensions may not fit the allotted space and new units may not match original design specifications. Replacement options (and product urls) are subject to change by current manufactures. OEM still in business: Bodine, Century, Dayton (Grainger) and Reliance (Baldor). If you have information to add, please contact the moderator.
