You could have most likely gotten one cheaper than what you paid for the motor itself. But at least you are up and running now. Moving air is really needed for the hot humid days
I did check with a few local heating and air companies and none of the comapies had any motors, or so they say. One of the companies did say he would keep my number for the next time they replace a furnace. No call yet and CL didnt have anything at all i could use. The motor i got was 50 bucks, i am not not the best i could have gotten, but it owrks and moving some air. I have to keep soaping the belt to stop the squeaking, but it is running fine. Any suggestions for the belt squeak problem, it seems to be adjusted properly, but has an irritating squeak. Thanks for the reply.
