I have an old 110 purchased in the 70's just for personal use. I believe the motors have finally died. I have got it open "carefully" as it's sealed. Everything was working it just wouldn't pull 15" anymore thru the test plate. Appears to be lots of sparking from the motors. The Ametek fan motors it came with are no longer available. Not a motor guy and not sure if it just needs brushes, new motors, can they be re-built, any idea where I can buy replacement motors, etc etc ???
Appreciate any feedback ... Thanks

You could try grainger. I know they did sell brushes for Ametek motors.

That said, Don't waste your time and efforts, there are good if not better motors available out there now and you will be much better served replacing then trying to fix. BTW there is no just needs brushes, this is like replacing a glazed burnt clutch disk and not surfacing the flywheel and pressure plate. All you will end up with is more bigger sparks.
