I have the chance to get a large air compressor for free. The present owner states the motor on the machine is damaged and a new one is needed. I have looked the compressor over and it is in great shape. The motor is a 5 hp compressor motor nothing fancy. The capacitor (sp) has been torn off the motor and that looks to be the only damage. If the motor has to be replaced can a new one be had cheap. I have done some looking around and everything seems to be going for around $300.00 for the motor. I can buy a similar new compressor for a couple of hundred more. I would like to get into this compressor as cheap as possible any help would be appreciated.
