Anyone Replace Grizzly G0555 Motor?

Anyone replace the 1 HP motor to 1-1/2HP motor? Grizzly said the motor flange mounting is proprietary and they don't have the1-1/2HP motor available.
Thanks

I replaced it, but with the same motor as the original had a bad bearing as it was sent to me. Curious as to why you want the extra 1/2 hp. I've resawed 4" x 4" and made bandsaw boxes causing me to resaw nearly 6" thick oak and it never slowed.
