Your motor is significantly easier than that one – I don’t think it has that centrifugal switch assembly for one, and the capacitor is in the base with the rest of the wiring. I redid the exact same motor a couple of years ago, but it ran fine to begin with. It was just packed with sawdust and I replaced the bearings because mine were replacement sealed bearings that felt dry (that’s why I like the original type like you have). You really only need to take off the end where your pulley is, pull out the inner armature and shaft and leave the outer windings alone in the housing. You may find nothing wrong with your capacitor but it may be a loose connection in the base. Have fun.
