Pull the motor out. Log onto www.google.com and click
"shopping". In the search box, type the number you find on
the old motor. See what's out there.
When I move into my trailer, 1994, the washing machine got
left behind. Needed a motor. I blasted out the berrings with
some solvent, can't remember what. Reoiled the motor. It
locked up again, maybe ten years later, and I did the same
I'd suggest a spray can of brake cleaner, to clean the
berrings. Let it dry, and then oil it generously with two
stroke gas mixer oil (no gasoline, please). Spin the motor
by hand a couple times, and put it all back together.
It would take you ten minutes to redo the motor, or twenty
minutes to order one online, and then you got to wait a
week. Do what you want.
