Topic tags/keywords: tip motor ac motor motor replacement motor upgrade motor frame

I’ve been looking for a replacement motor for my C’man 113.298030 TS. With that, I’ve been scouring the web looking for motors.

Not sure how many people are aware, all motors have a “frame” # or designation. This frame # has to do with the dimensions of critical components of the motor, ie; length, width, height, shaft size, mounting bolt locations and the list goes on. Depending upon the application, motors of differing frame #’s could be interchanged. There may need to be some tweaking of the mounting holes or the like, but if other aspects are compatible, a motor of a differing frame # could possibly be substituted.

With that said, I found a website that has a gadget to compare two different frame #’s. You type in the OEM motor frame #, then enter the frame # of the replacement motor under consideration, click the “match” button and the gadget does the rest. It gives a 0 to 100 rating on the compatability of the motor frames and it lists the differences. Quite a handy little “gadget”.

The website is www.SurplusMotors.com and the gadget is here.

I just thought I’d pass this along. I thought those folks restoring/rehabing machines or building shop made machines could find this helpful.

Jeff,
No you don’t know when or if it’ll ever be needed. Hopefully only for a project and not for a replacement!
