Bummer. Hate when the smoke gets out! (G)

If this is the 221307 model, it's direct drive, so you need the assembled motor/pump combo.

That runs around $220.

Depending on how/why this one fried. you might check what's on the smaller 1.5HP lugable 57655.

Assuming the thing is out of warranty, may as well just buy another one and use the tank on the older one for extra storage or just sell it for the tank and wheels.
