220 and 110 draw the same amps. With 220 the load is split half the amps go down one leg and half down the other leg. You’ll get more torque and a quicker startup with the 220. It may run cooler on 220 also.
I would do as Dallas suggests. That is a 60year old motor probably still good but needing serviced. That would be a lot cheaper than replacing the motor because it needed a service and din’t get it.
