I cant find a replacement motor for this speedaire, looks like they don't make the motor anymore, is there another option to replace the motor or should I just junk it?

Speedaire 5z017b 5 HP motor

I hope I'm wrong, but looks to me like this thing is direct drive. MTR shows a replacement pump, but no motor replacement.

Mike - are you certain the problem is the motor? What symptoms does the whole unit have?

Mike, does the existing motor have an info plate on it, maybe under the wiring hatch, that tells you the HP, RPM and voltage?

What I've found is that the original motor was 5 HP, I'm assuming 240 volt, now the only thing missing is the RPM.

If so, you can use any motor with the same specs and that you can mount on the frame. It doesn't have to be OEM, in case you haven't already thought about that.
