If it's a direct drive you may find someone to rebuild / rewind the motor.
If it's a belt drive, lots of options to having that motor rebuilt to a
number of replacements available. Need to know what type of mount, shaft
size, length, etc. Sears Parts may even have a replacement.

Not too much and no smell, but it looks like the motor is about to go. What
are my options? I hate to say good-bye to an old friend.
